Young Writers Workshop

Carrollton League of Writers: Young Writers Workshop Do you LOVE to write? Do you have STORIES you want to tell? We have a full day planned including classes taught by successful authors and lots of fun activities to reinforce what you learn. 4th - 7th Grade Michelle Schusterman is the author of the middle grade series I HEART BAND! and THE KAT SINCLAIR FILES, as well as the dark fairy tale-inspired middle grade standalones OLIVE AND THE BACKSTAGE GHOST and SPELL & SPINDLE, all with Penguin Random House. She's co-author of the YA novel THE PROS OF CONS (Scholastic), and of the SECRETS OF TOPSEA series under the pseudonym M. Shelley Coats (Disney Hyperion). Michelle also wrote the fourth book in the New York Times Bestselling GIRLS WHO CODE series. Her novels have earned starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Publisher's Weekly, and two are Junior Library Guild selections. 8th – 12th Grade Award-winning author, Kathleen Baldwin, loves adventure in books and in real life. She taught rock climbing in the Rockies, survival camped in the desert, was stalked by a mountain lion, lost an argument with a rattlesnake, enjoyed way too many classes in college, fell in love at least a dozen times, and married her very own hero. SCHOOL FOR UNUSUAL GIRLS is her first historical romance for Young Adults. Awarded 2016 Spirit of Texas, it is also a Junior Library Guild selection. Publisher’s Lunch listed it in 2015 YA BookBuzz. Scholastic licensed it for book fairs. Ian Bryce, producer of Spiderman, Saving Private Ryan, and other notable films optioned the series for film. And some very special surprise guests including a literary agent with an 11th grade student on her client list will be coming by to visit and inspire! Cost for the entire day: $25.00 (Includes sandwich/chips/dessert/drink lunch) ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED. PLEASE NO LAPTOPS OR TABLETS. Grade Levels Are Determined By Fall 2019 Grade Level.
