Can't wait to get your story about Abe Lincoln's socks, the star-nosed mole, or your expertise in bathing yaks published, but don't know where to start? Nonfiction writing is more than spouting facts. Discover how, with a few slight differences, good nonfiction and fiction writing are the same. Nonfiction needs superb words, captivating sentences, and most importantly, a voice that invites readers into the story and keeps them riveted to the end. Join authors Ruth A. Musgrave and Christy Peterson for this one-day event and discover the ins and outs of writing compelling nonfiction for children, including research, voice, and first lines. Nonfiction writing markets will also be discussed.

Deadline to register is April 15th, 2017 and there are no refunds after April 15th, 2017.
