Two workshops in Moncton, New Brunswick, on Saturday, June 26

"Writing for children and young adults"
9 a.m. - 12 noon
New venue: Moncton Lions Community Center
473 St. George Street, Moncton
(Just off Vaughn Harvey Blvd., next to Beaverbrook Curling Club, CFB Moncton, etc. Map here.)

Whether you want to write the next best-selling children’s books or just want to create stories for your own kids, this workshop is for you. Learn how to write stories kids and young adults will love, and find out what you need to know to sell your book.
Special option: Bring your picture book manuscript or if you’re writing for older children or teens, bring your opening pages, and get them critiqued on the spot. If you’re not currently working on a children’s story, don’t worry, we’ll get you started!

And…
“Genres that Sell”
~ How to write and sell commercial woman’s fiction ~
1 p.m. - 4 p.m
New venue: Moncton Lions Community Center
473 St. George Street, Moncton
(Just off Vaughn Harvey Blvd., next to Beaverbrook Curling Club, CFB Moncton, etc. Map here.)

Get the inside story. Whether you want to write a blockbuster bestseller like Bridget Jones’s Diary, a traditional Harlequin-style romance, or woman’s erotica, this workshop will show you how. Learn the “secret formulas” and how to brainstorm a story line. Find out how much money authors earn and where the best opportunities are to get published now.

He is the author of a children’s version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and George Brown College, and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Ottawa.

many of his students get their first book published and launch their careers as authors.
