How do I write books for modern children?, Little Gnome, Friday, 07. August 2020

Share Your Story is a profit for purpose consultancy for aspiring authors.
Join award winning picture book author Michelle Worthington as she takes aspiring picture book authors throught the basics of writing stories for modern children in an interactive Q and A. She will discuss the different formats of children's books and creating stories that modern children will enjoy by finding the right topic, language and pace, as well as helping writers to find their own unique voice. 
This workshop is for emerging artists who have an idea for a picture book, but not yet written it, or have written a manuscript and require validation that is has what it takes to get published. No prior knowledge of the publishing industry is required.

Places are limited to 10 and Afternoon Tea are available to purchase from Little Gnome, as well as a great range of books.A portion from the price of your workshop fee will be donated by Share Your Story Australia to enable a Dalit girl or young woman aged between 13 to 19 years old access to literacy education. These girls, who come from the poorest families, have been taken out of the education system to help work on the land, or in other ways earn money for their family. This will enhance their lives through teaching them to read and write. Thank you for your Bio:Michelle WorthingtonShe is a real-life book fairy.
