LONDONDERRY, Vt. – Has it been your dream to write a children’s book? On Monday, Jan. 29 at 2:30 p.m. children’s book author Steve Swinburne will be at the Meeting Place at Neighborhood Connections to discuss the nuts and bolts of writing for children. Swinburne takes you from idea creation and blank page to printed book, covering (almost) everything you need to know about researching, writing, and publishing a book for kids.
In a humor-filled presentation, Swinburne uses storytelling and over 30 years of experience in children’s writing to teach you about research, first drafts, rewriting, proposals, pitching an editor or agent, illustrations or photographs, promotion, etc. This program is offered at no charge but register by calling 802-824-4343 if you would like to learn the A—Z about the business of children’s books.
