Workshop on how to write for children and young adults

One of the writing workshop leaders, Cynthia GoodThe University of Prince Edward Island is partnering with Humber College to present The Insider’s Guide to Writing and Publishing for Young Readers, a workshop for writers of literature for children and young adults. Join presentors July 13 to 15 in Charlottetown for a workshop full of practical suggestions and writing inspiration.

Created by facilitators Cynthia Good and Rick Wilks, the workshop first ran in Charlottetown in 2015 as a partnership between Holland College and Toronto’s Humber College. This summer, UPEI and Humber are joining forces to offer an expanded workshop. More time will be devoted to writing feedback, and a session has been added with kids’ book marketing expert Tom Ryan.

Each workshop day is divided into writing and publishing segments. There will be the opportunity to get feedback on one chapter of your book, if you have a manuscript. The publishing segments will look at the current publishing landscape, explore traditional and self-publishing models, provide business details, and help you to construct a query letter for publishers and literary agents. Each participant will leave the workshop with new directions for their manuscript, enriched knowledge of publishing, and an effective query letter.

Cynthia Good has been a leader in the publishing industry for many years. She was appointed the first editorial director of Penguin Books Canada and went on to become president and publisher. After Penguin she joined Humber College.

Rick Wilks co-founded Annick Press in 1975 and has been its sole director since 2000. Rick oversees all aspects of the publishing process, with a special emphasis on acquisitions. Rick also co-founded the National Reading Campaign.
