In this three-hour workshop Angela Misri will take writers through the steps of creating and pitching stories for middle grades and young adult readers. This includes exercises in world-building, younger points of view, character, diversity, educational vs. entertainment writing, and story arcs.

Participants are welcome to arrive with own existing ideas and writing. We will be sharing our work at different points in the workshop.

This workshop is presented in partnership with the Canadian Authors Association, Niagara Branch.
