2019 Florida Writing Workshop

The 2019 Florida Writing Workshop is an opportunity to get intense instruction over the course of one day, pitch a literary agent or editor (optional), get your questions answered about writing, and more. 

9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday, June 8, 2019 — at the Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore, 5303 W Kennedy Blvd, Tampa, FL 33609. (813) 289-1950.

My topic: Writing for Young Adult and Middle Grade Audiences

Time: 2:45 - 3:45

Leigh Bardugo, Rick Riordan, Angie Thomas, and YOU. In this 60-minute class, you'll learn who your audience is, hear about the "musts" of YA and MG fiction, review publication trends, and discover the pitfalls to avoid when crafting. Join other kidlit writers as I discuss writing for a younger audience. 

I’ll also be critiquing work in advance and discussing writing one-on-one with YA authors.
