NW WI-SCBWI Get Together

Join us! Writing Nonfiction for Kids

Our northwestern group of the SCBWI Wisconsin (or anyone else interested in writing for kids) is meeting next Saturday, April 27 for a discussion about writing non-fiction for children and young adults.

Helen Swanson will talk about writing non-fiction for preschoolers, Joanne Linden will talk about her poetry/non-fiction nature book for children, Becky Wojahn (that’s me!) will talk about her award winning non-fiction books, and Eva Apelqvist will talk about her non-fiction books for Enslow and Scarecrow. Each of the speakers will bring topics they feel are the most interesting to them, but participants are of course welcome to bring questions and comment. As usual for our northern group, this is a very informal gathering.

And for those who would like to stay for lunch, 12-1, we will then discuss future plans – we have at least three great ideas for future meetings in the works, including the picture book workshop you have been promised, and would love some input and new ideas.

Down to Earth’s Garden Center, 10-12! Hope to see you there!
