Join us on Zoom Sunday, October 10, 8:30 AM PDT, for an in-depth writing intensive led by award-winning author Candace Fleming.


Nonfiction That Reads Like a Novel

Narrative nonfiction for middle grade and YA readers has exploded. Teens and teachers crave it. Publishers want it. So how do you write it, and write it well? Through lively discussion, mini-lessons, and writing exercises, we will explore structure, scene, pacing, and other storytelling techniques that will turn your true stories into page-turners.
