Writing for early readers can be challenging, considering comprehension levels vary significantly in children aged 5-10. Thus crafting text and illustrations which are accessible as well as captivating can be tricky when revising manuscripts aimed at attracting an audience with evolving literacy skills. If your current work-in-progress is a first chapter book or early reader, you might benefit from our upcoming workshop, Writing First Chapter Books and Early Readers, June 17-20, 2019.
Here’s a look at what you’ll learn at this workshop:
We’ve got an experienced faculty at the helm, too: Laurie Calkhoven, author of more than 50 books for young readers; Wiley Blevins, editor and author of early reader books and series; Debbie Michiko Florence, former teacher and author of several early chapter book series; Tracey West, author of more then 300 books for children; and Katie Carella, Executive Editor at Scholastic’s Acorn early reader line and Branches early chapter book line.
