Kids Publishing in Today’s Market
We’re so excited to have Karen O’Connor (Julie Bogart’s mother, noted author) offer a Brave Writer class! Karen has published over 70 books, 25+ of them written for the children’s fiction and non-fiction markets. She’s written 1000’s of magazine articles and has taught writing for publication for more than 40 years.
Brave Writer promotes the idea that quality writing is worth reading. What better venue is there to find readers than publishing what you write for an interested audience? Do your children have poems, essays, stories, or articles they’d like to see published in a magazine or on the web in a blog or e-zine? If so, this course is for them (and for you, the homeschooling parent, so that you’ll know how to navigate the whole process!).
Lessons will focus on the six steps that lead to the wonderful world of publishing.
