2014 Workshop Description

Afternoon Session — Instructor: Malin Alegria

Finding your Road Map to Young Adult lit

So you have this awesome story idea. Maybe you even wrote it down. Your mom loves it. But how do you make your dream of writing Young Adult into a concrete reality that you can hold with your hands? How can you share your voice? Ask one hundred authors for the secret of their success and you will get one hundred different answers.

Each of us, as writers, must create our own road map to writing and success. In this course, I will share my unconventional journey, my hit and miss adventures in publishing, and my secrets to becoming my dream. Participants will get a chance to chart their own road map, laugh, and find peace on this journey towards self-actualization.
