This is a rather unique event. You can sit in front of your computer or laptop or other electronic device and watch a selected list of well-known industry professionals talk about writing everything from picture books to young adult novels.
Presenters include authors/illustrators Marie Louise Fitzpatrick and Michael Emberley, along with animation director Norton Virgien, literary agent Polly Nolan, author/illustrator Oisin McGann, and author Meg Rosoff.
There will be exercises for participants to do and they will also have opportunities to ask questions and give feedback during scheduled breaks.
If you can’t watch the event live on Saturday, you can buy the workshop to download and watch later or watch it on-demand from the website.
