Writing and Publishing the Middle Grade Novel

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-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
