Writing For Children with Sofie Laguna

Only five places remain for this workshop by Sofie Laguna, author of more than 20 books for children. Focus on technical aspects of writing, including voice, character, plot, structure and content, as well as the publishing side of the business. Learn how to discover and use an authentic child’s voice in various forms of children’s writing: picture books, junior novels and novels. Find out how knowing your characters well will solve problems related to plot, rhythm and structure.

Presented in association with Writers Victoria. Supported by the Grace Marion Wilson Trust.

Please note: The Melbourne Writers Festival is having its regional day at M.A.D.E. on August 27, so the site will be busier than usual – that means a likely queue at the coffee shop, but who knows who you’ll meet!
