Children's books have never been more popular. With Harry Potter and the Twilight series, young adult fiction has exploded, and with Go the @&*! to Sleep, picture books have taken a new turn. Learn what makes these books speak to all of us, no matter our age, and discover the key elements significant to these forms. Through lectures, discussion, writing activities, visits from guest speakers, and two workshop sessions, learn how to expand your own writing skills and develop a solid writing habit.
