Writing a children’s novel really is as fun as it sounds. Sure, there’s hard work involved, but there should also be a sense of joy and freedom. In this practical workshop, award–winning children’s author Katrina Nannestad takes you through the simple strategies she uses to turn the seed of an idea into a full-blown novel for kids and the tricks she uses to make her words sing. You will be encouraged to get in touch with your inner child.
