What: LET ME SAVE YOU 20 YEARS, A Speed Course in Children's Writing/Publishing One-Day Workshop
Children's writers are typically warm and fuzzy, but the publishing industry isn't as open-armed. Author, teacher, and speaker Lorri Cardwell-Casey will help you get started with the right information. You will learn how to improve the quality of your writing, better understand the nitty-gritty mechanics that can make all the difference, learn how to increase your chances to sell your work, find out what many writing terms mean, and get an industry overview.
When: Saturday, Feb. 20. Join us for coffee at 9 a.m., workshop will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Box lunches from Planet Sub included in registration fee.
Where: Room 135, BEST Conference Center, KU Edwards Campus, 12600 Quivira Road, Overland Park, KS
Who: This workshop is designed for those new to the children's publishing world, as well as for more experienced writers or author/illustrators who want a refresher on the business and the opportunity to ask questions and network. The workshop is targeted to writers, but much of the information will be helpful to author/illustrators as well.
