Learn how to enchant young minds in this two-part Advanced Course, which includes the opportunity to have your work critiqued in a workshop environment.
From Barrie to Blyton, Dahl to Rowling, the storytellers we encounter in childhood shape the adults we become. Stories are the water and sunlight that grow young imaginations, and the values and ideas found in our favourite children’s books remain indelibly imprinted upon us as grown-ups.
The author of seven critically acclaimed children’s books, an accomplished tutor of creative writing, and a lauded non-fiction author besides, Philip Womack returns to How To Academy to teach you how to develop engaging, age-appropriate stories.
You will learn:
- How to begin and hook in your reader;
- The necessity of metamorphosis and wildness in children’s fiction;
- Structuring chapters, paragraphs and sentences;
- What to expect from the publishing experience.
This is also fabulous opportunity to have your work critiqued: we’ll look in detail at your own work within a workshopping environment.
This course builds on the lessons from Philip Womack’s three-part introductory course, but can be taken independently.
Tickets are strictly limited to 20 attendees.
