Minnesota SCBWI 2009 Spring Workshop

Boon the Raccoon illustration by Christina Rodriguez.The Minnesota Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators cordially invites you to our Spring 2009 Workshop!

The Nuts and Bolts of Children's Writing
Date: Saturday, May 16th, 2009
Time: 10am – 1pm
Place: Ridgedale Library, 12601 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka, MN 55305
Cost: $25 members, $35 non-members. Registration will be at the door, and light refreshments will be served.

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.

For more information, please download a flyer for the event. We hope to see you there!
