If you've written a middle grade novel but aren't sure what to do next, this class is for you! Join an author of three published middle grade novels to learn how to take your manuscript to the next level. Each class session will start with a mini-lesson on crucial topics in middle grade, including voice, opening pages, character development, and more.
From there we will spend class time sharing and critiquing one another's work with the day's specific topic in mind, and we will end with time for writing, revision, and questions. Participation will be a crucial component to this class, so please only register if you're willing and able to both get and give feedback.
