Writing for Children & Adolescents

This course focuses on understanding children¿s books as distinct from books for adults, on the art and craft of writing for children, and how writing for children fits into the publishing business. In this workshop class, students gain an understanding of children¿s literature as a literary genre as they develop and revise their own work. By the end of the semester, each student will have completed at least one picture-book manuscript or several chapters of a novel for middle-grade or young-adult readers.
