Writing for Children

In an event scheduled by a creative writing class, I am sharing my children’s books at the McConnell Arts Center in the presentation “Writing for Children”. I shared my Sprite press books as examples for topics and guidelines for writing for children. I am showing the craft included in the book Canneh the Reluctant Camel  who acts like a human and learns a lesson. I stressed writing universal themes into children’s stories.

Peg and Rebecca

Rebecca Tutcher is a high school senior who plans to be a writer/editor. She is a student in the Empowering Young Women to Aspire and Achieve Program. I am mentoring her through 40 hours of the process of writing and publication. Rebecca has read and discussed additions and corrections to the galley of my upcoming book.  We have written and shared from the same prompts, discussed short stories and poetry, and designed promotional materials. She is scheduled to attend the Ohio Writer’s Guild, a book signing and a book club meeting to experience the many sides of a writer’s life. She will “display” her mentorship in May.

Groveport Town Hall

Along with several Ohio authors, I presented my published books and the Prologue to my manuscript WHILE… This was a great way to create interest in my upcoming book. We discussed our books and the process of writing with the audience. A mediator led the discussions and our books were available for sale. From positive feedback, I plan to be a part of more Author Forums in the Columbus area.
