Fishtrap is now accepting registrations for its sixth annual Children’s Literature Writing Workshop, for people interested in writing and illustrating books for children and young adults. The weekend-long event will be held Friday, September 11 through Sunday, September 13. Faculty this year will be Oregon author Rosanne Parry and Meg Lippert. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants. Both are experienced writing instructors who will lead the class on a “Voyage of Discovery: Exploring Character and Setting in Story.”
According to Fishtrap, “the emphasis will be on the craft of creating vivid settings and memorable characters.No prior experience is necessary – those who would like to begin writing for children are also welcome. In addition to craft oriented workshops, the weekend program includes a Saturday night faculty presentation open to the public, a Q&A program on the business of writing and publishing, and an open mike session for workshop participants to share their work.”
Meg Lippert has written 22 books of multicultural folk tales, including Why Leopard Has Spots, Head Body Legs, and The Talking Vegetables.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The workshop fee is $215, which includes all meals except Saturday breakfast. For more information or to register, visit Fishtrap’s website or call 541-426-3623.
