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 to write. Students will learn how to write kids and young adults for an adult market. We will conduct small group exercises, analyze scenes from recent novels, and practice by writing a short scene together.
