We were intrigued to learn that City University are launching a new short course focusing on writing Children’s Fiction. Here are some more details:
Take the Children’s Fiction Workshop with award-winning author, Sophia Bennett.
Learn how to improve your craft and make your work stand out with City’s new 10-week short course launching October 2015.
The Children’s Fiction Workshop is an intermediate fiction-writing course for students who are already working on stories for children or young adults, and who want to improve their writing skills. The course will examine the UK children’s fiction market today, and the techniques required to make your work stand out. There will be opportunities to share your own writing and participate in critiquing workshops with the other members of the group.
You will learn from examples of some of the best current writers in each age group and gain an insight into what agents and publishers are looking for. By the end of this course you will have a better idea of your writing strengths, what to work on, and which support networks can help you reach your writing goals.
