Writing for Children & for Young Adults – the world’s hottest market
Saturday, November 8, 2014
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Harcourt United Church, 87 Dean Ave, Guelph, Ontario (Map here.)

If 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: You may, but don't have to, bring 2 or 3 copies of the opening couple pages (first 500 words) of your children’s book or young adult novel (or 1,000 words if that will get you to the end of your picture book or to the end of your first chapter.) If you’re not currently working on a children’s story, don’t worry, we’ll get you started on the spot!

Workshop leader 
Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown FoxCanada’s most popular blog for writers (see here) and is the author of a children’s version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Tribute Publishing Inc). But his proudest boast is that he’s has helped many of his students get published.
