Mentoring and Workshop Program – Writing for Children and Young Adults, January 2020
Are you looking for on-going writing support, with monthly deadlines, expert feedback, and participation and discussion along with other committed children’s book creators? Maybe you have thought about doing an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, but not had the flexibility or been able to afford the high fees, which can be around $50,000. Then this could be the perfect opportunity!
Here’s a chance to work one-on-one with award-winning children’s book author, editor and publisher, Laura Atkins, along with a cohort of other writers. You will submit writing on a monthly basis, followed by an exclusive one-on-one session with Laura to discuss your work and writing goals. There will also be a monthly teaching workshop, where Laura will focus on a topic drawn from reading participants’ work, with time for exercises, sharing and discussion. You can take part in person if you are in the Bay Area or be part of an online community if further afield. One-on-one sessions can be in person in Berkeley, CA or via phone/online.
