Attention: kids and people who like writing for kids

I’m working with the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts to present two exciting and (hopefully) useful workshops for writers, young and not-so-young:

– FIRST DRAFT BOOT CAMP – WRITING CHILDREN’S BOOKS (for adults)
Get started on a first draft, or polish your work-in-progress.  Pick up great tips, practice new techniques, discover publishing markets and more.
Starts: Monday 7 May, 7.30-9pm.  Cost: $150 for 6 weeks.

and

– WRITING ADVENTURE STORIES (after school, for kids around 8 to 12)
Do you like reading action, adventure, fantasy or horror?  Want to write your own cliffhanger stories?  Fire up your imaginations and get ready to create.
Starts: Monday 7 May, 3.30-4.30pm.  Cost: $100 for 6 weeks.

Both writing courses will be held at the gorgeous Victoria Park Centre for the Arts. Hope to see you there, and if you have any questions, please feel free to email me on cj@cristyburne.com or contact the Centre:
