Online Workshops with Chris Eboch

Five Myths about Writing for Children

with Chris Eboch

A FREE online workshop on June 25, 10 am PDT/1 pm EDTSign up here.
In this session, we'll be discussing some of the common pitfalls standing in the way of prospective children's book authors. 

We'll then have some open Q&A with author Chris Eboch, so please come prepared with your questions about the art and business of publishing children's literature. 

I will also be teaching a three-part intensive webinar in July:

You Can Write for Children

Remember the magic of bedtime stories? When you write for children, you have the most appreciative audience in the world. But to reach that audience, you need to understand the business of writing for children, including the requirements for different genres, age ranges, and markets. You also need to write fresh, dynamic stories, whether you’re writing rhymed picture books or middle grade mysteries or edgy teen novels.

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll explore how to do all of that. Participants also have the option of getting personal feedback on their homework for an additional $49.

This class is both for beginning and experienced writers looking to build skill and learn more about the publishing environment for children's book authors. Recordings will be available to class participants, both for review and for anyone who can’t attend a session live.
Three Wednesdays, July 9th, July 16th, July 23rd
10 am - 11:30 am PDT/1 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Price: $99. Participants also have the option of getting personal feedback on their homework for an additional $49.
