New Year’s Resolutions

Part of my resolution for 2017 is to do more teaching. To that end, I’m pleased to announce the following courses I will be offering through Selkirk College:

Introduction to Children’s Literature
Course ID: ARTS 1084A

For those wanting to know more about children’s literature in order to write a book of their own. Learn about the different categories of children’s books and how to identify your target audience. Using examples from current and classic books for readers from newborn to age eighteen, participants will examine what makes a children’s book successful. Leave with a plan for getting your book idea onto the page. Guided by Yolanda Ridge

Creating Your Children’s Book
Course ID: ARTS 1084B

Do you have an idea for a book aimed at children ages newborn to eighteen? In this course, you will learn how to write and revise your book to suit your target audience. In each class, we will examine one aspect of a successful children¿s book and apply it to your work in progress. Includes 1:1 feedback with Yolanda, leave with up to 5 pages of a completed draft.
