Here’s a message from Jeanne Miller for anyone interested in writing for kids, or those who want to know more about writing fiction. (WE NEED MORE HORSE STORIES FOR KIDS! –Robin)
Dear Redwood Community,
I’d like to encourage you to sign up for the Winter Workshop with Lewis Buzbee on Saturday, Feb. 5th in Petaluma. The title, Writing for Young Readers (and more!) may have dissuaded you if you are not a YA writer.
GREAT NEWS: Writing for younger readers requires the same skills and expertise as any other well-crafted genre. YA is only Lewis’s most recent success. He will tailor his presentation to meet our needs.
Lewis is a professor in the MFA program at USF, a multi-faceted author who has published novels, memoir, non-fiction, essays and history—all for adult readers. I urge you to check out his website: http://web.me.com/buzbeebooks/Site/Yellow_Lighted_Bookshop.html
Without enough participants, I regret to tell you we will have to cancel. I hope you won’t let this be a missed opportunity.
And while you’re at it, join us for Beyond the Plot too.
