FREE | Writing for Young Readers: A Workshop with Angela Misri

January 29, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

Writing for Young Readers- A Workshop with Angela Misri
Join author Angela Misri for a workshop on creating and pitching stories for middle-grade and young adult readers.

About this event

In this three-hour workshop, Angela Misri will take writers through the steps of creating and pitching stories for middle grades and young adult readers. This includes exercises in world-building, younger points of view, character, diversity, educational vs. entertainment writing, and story arcs.

Participants are welcome to arrive with their own existing ideas and writing. We will be sharing our work at different points in the workshop.

Angela Misri is an award-winning digital journalist, novelist, and instructor with more than twenty years of experience, fourteen of them with the CBC and now as the Digital Director for The Walrus. She is also the author of seven books, including the 2021 Hackmatack fiction winner, Pickles vs the Zombies.

Please note this workshop is intended for adults learning more about writing for young readers. This workshop is presented in partnership with the Canadian Authors Association, Niagara Branch.


Please Note: This event will now be provided virtually via Zoom.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
