Life on the Deckle Edge

Gail Karwoski Workshop!

Are you eager to learn the ins and outs of writing and publishing for children, and are you somewhere near north Georgia? Whether your passion is picture books or novels, award-winning author Gail Langer Karwoski is the teacher for you.

On Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, Gail is offering The ABC's of Writing for Young Readers at the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation in Watkinsville, Ga. See www.ocaf.com under "Literary Arts" for workshop details, but here are the highlights:

Part One: The Art and Business of Writing for Young Readers
(Everyone takes this session and then chooses from either one or both of Parts Two and Three)

Part Two: Workshop - Crafting the Picture Book

Sunday April 18, 2010

Gail spent many years in the classroom before becoming a full-time author. Whether sharing a couch in a critique group or sharing an auditorium, she presents information clearly and takes the time to make sure it is understood.

Gail's nine books for young readers include nature-oriented picture books (her latest is RIVER BEDS), historical novels (such as QUAKE), and nonfiction. She has taught children's writing at the Southeastern Writers Association, the Sandhills Writers Conference, the Georgia Writers Association, SCBWI Southern Breeze conferences, and the Harriette Austin Conference.
