'Writing for Children and Young People' with E.R. Murray
If you want to write for children or teens and don’t know where to start, or you’ve been writing for other age groups and would like to try writing for a younger readership, this workshop is for you. Through prompted writing exercises, open discussion, and Q&A, this workshop series will cover a wide range of topics such as age classifications; voice; character; content; setting; world building and dialogue, to help you build a toolbox and start writing the stories you want to tell. This workshop will take place online via Zoom, over 4 weeks. Elizabeth Rose Murray writes for children, young adults, and adults. Her books include Caramel Hearts and The Nine Lives Trilogy: The Book of Learning (2016 Dublin UNESCO City of Literature Citywide Read for Children), The Book of Shadows (shortlisted 2016 Irish Book Awards & Irish Literacy Association Award) and The Book of Revenge. Recent anthology and journal publications include The Elysian: Creative Responses, Reading the Future, Autonomy, Popshots, Terrain, Tiny Essays, Banshee and Women on Nature.
