8-Week: Lighthouse North—Writing the YA or MG Novel

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

Writing a novel for the young adult (YA) or middle grade (MG) audience requires a blend of vigorous technique and strong literary voice. In this hands-on workshop, we'll study novel writing through the unique YA and MG lens. You will submit up to 60 pages of your writing (15 pages every other week) and receive personal critique in the form of written and recorded comments to encourage professional flair. Critique will be focused on creating engaging and authentic young voices; honing the relationship between voice and point of view; writing dialogue filled with emotion and subtext; using setting and pacing to enhance the plot; and scoping out the true beginning and ending to your book.

Prerequisite: For intermediate to advanced writers. Requires either previous introductory classes or permission of the instructor. To apply, please email a writing sample (three to five pages) and a brief description of your workshop history to [email protected]

 

Lighthouse North Directions and Parking

From Highway 36, take the McCaslin North exit. At the fourth light, turn west onto Century Drive (there's a Walgreens on the NW corner). Take your first left (daycare on that corner).
