Conflict, conflict, and more conflict. Children’s books are often fast-paced and packed with action. By using survival stories, we’ll learn how interesting people plus big problems create the most engaging plots. We’ll push our characters to their breaking points in a variety of wacky survival situations to see how they react. Along the way, we’ll explore ways to raise the stakes in any writing. This playful, interactive workshop will leave you with your own survival backpack, full of practical new writing tools.
