Writers will have the opportunity to share their stories in a supportive, focused, and enlightening environment. Facilitated discussions of participants’ manuscripts will highlight the writing process, story components, elements of narrative, craft, revision, and marketability within today’s children’s book publishing world. Writers of all levels, all formats, and all genres will be offered a variety of writing exercises, suggested readings, and current marketing information.

Esther Hershenhorn authors picture books, middle-grade fiction and nonfiction, coaches children’s book writers, and recently served on the Board of Advisors of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
