Young Authors’ Conference

on April 15, 2016

I am thrilled to be participating in the Young Authors’ Conference hosted by School District No. 73 and held at the the Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops.YoungAuthors_logo_no_date_small

I will be presenting a workshop titled He Said, She Said: It’s all about PERSPECTIVE. Using The Three Little Pigs as an example, we’ll discuss how telling a story from a different character’s perspective can change it entirely. From there, we will review different points of view and how to choose which one to use for your story. We will end with a fun writing exercise and leave with a better understanding of voice.

There will be lots of laughs (and funny videos) to get participants inspired. I’m really excited about this opportunity to meet with aspiring young authors from this part of the province. I am also thrilled to be working with six other talented authors who are also presenting workshops for grades 4-7 and three authors who are presenting workshops for grades 8-12.

I will be reporting back in early May and adding this workshop to my author visit page in hopes of bringing it to other schools and conferences in the future!
