Whether you're just getting started writing for kids or you've been writing for a while, this is the workshop for you! Dara Dokas and Laura Purdie Salas will share tips on the basics of children's and teen writing, resources for kids' writers, submitting your work, researching publishers and agents, etc. Then, you can ask any questions you like (including the ones you might have been too embarrassed to ask at a conference). This will be an encouraging, supportive atmosphere where you can learn more about becoming a children's writer.
