Writing Kids in a Grown-Up World [Evan Ramzipoor]
All Levels | The Family Fang, The Kite Runner, Ender’s Game, All the Light We Cannot See . . . Some of our most memorable and sophisticated fiction is populated by child protagonists. Children often see and hear everything that we miss, which makes them uniquely difficult (and interesting) characters. Students will learn how to write complex kids and young adults for an adult market. We will conduct small-group exercises and analyze scenes from recent novels. Students will then practice their skills by writing a short scene.
