Intermediate / Advanced | What makes a novel uniquely middle-grade? This craft-intensive class will focus on developing voice, plotting, character development, scene construction, and dialogue pitched for the middle-grade reader, as well as revision and the submission process. We will study texts from a diverse selection of modern middle-grade novels, and hear from local published authors. Open to writers with a serious interest in developing or completing a middle-grade novel, with an eye toward publication.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
