Hi everyone, I just wanted to apologise for the delay in announcing successful applicants’ names. It’s coordinating the last stages which is taking more time than expected. I will let you all know by next Monday at the very latest.
In the meantime, please be aware that the following is the date for the first masterclass, which will be with me, and will be a general introduction and orientation in writing for children/ teenagers.
First workshop = Saturday 02 April, 1 pm till 3 pm.
The venue is as specified on the FAQs page: Writing West Midlands have kindly given Megaphone use of their lovely meeting room in the Custard Factory, Birmingham (Digbeth).
Finally, if you’d like to get hold of a guide to writing for children, I can recommend Writing Children’s Fiction, a Writers’ and Artists’ companion, by Linda Newbery and Yvonne Coppard. It’s a wide-ranging book with a conversational tone, and you can dip in and out of it as you please.
