workshop

Writing for Profit It’s possible to turn your talent for writing into a money-making venture. This two-day workshop helps you explore options you may not have considered. We look at blogging, writing for magazines and ezines, fiction and non-fiction books. We discuss additional sources of income for writers that you may be unaware of. It’s on at the St George and Sutherland Community College: click here.

 

Kids’ Fiction Workshop. This one-day workshop is designed for people who want to write for this exciting and rewarding market. We examine the markets (picture books up to young adult) before getting into the nitty gritty of planning and writing. Plotting, pacing, and voice, as well as creating characters that kids love. We’ll discuss how to approach publishers, and what happens after you’ve been offered a contract. We’ll even discuss extra sources of income that children’s writers can expect to earn! It’s on at the St George and Sutherland Community College: click here.
