Summer Writing Opportunities for Young People

Know a budding young writer, aged, say, 11-16? They may want to take advantage of two different programs put on by our local libraries.

On July 6, 2016, I'll be kicking off a workshop series for the Burnaby Public Library's Julia's Studio, teaching young writers how to use interesting facts in their research to build a story. There are three other writers also giving workshops on different topics, each on a successive Wednesday. The best part, registration is free! For more information on the various workshops being offered visit the Burnaby Public Library's website.

From August 8-12, 2016, I'll be joining 8 other writers for the Vancouver Public Library's annual Bookcamp. This week-long day camp rotates young writers through five different workshops put on by published children's and YA writers, along with daily keynotes, writing times, and critique sessions. To find out more, check out the VPL's website.
