Plot Your Novel (and Other Acts of Joy and Heartbreak) with children’s author Rebecca Petruck

Mon., Oct. 13, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
phone 910-233-0515
rebecca_petruck@yahoo.com

A well-structured story creates room for a unique voice, and those two elements are what catch the attention of agents and editors. Children’s author Rebecca Petruck will teach a deceptively simple tool to “see” the entirety of your novel, then will plot two sample novels, one of them yours. The process is thought-provoking, interactive, and fun! Afterward, you’ll spend some time talking with Petruck about the path to publication in the children’s market and have an extended Q&A for you to pick her brain. This workshop is inspiring for both beginning and more experienced writers. $100
