Event Description

An 8-Week Class, Wednesdays 5:45pm-7:45pm

Ann Tyler said she became a novelist “because I refused to have only one life.” How do you invite the character who won’t be ignored, who drives you to assume their life and build for them a world of words? It’s what writers live for—and there are ways to make it happen more often. Join author Betsy James for eight weeks of assignments designed to find your characters and set them in motion. Each will be a maximum of 1000 words, followed by respectful peer critique, a mini-lesson and professional-level editorial feedback.

 

Betsy James is the author and illustrator of sixteen books for adults and children. Among other honors, her books have been named: New York Public Library Best Book for Teens; Voices of Youth Advocates Best Book; Junior Library Guild Selection; Canadian Children’s Book Center Best Book; International Reading Association Children’s Choice; and Tiptree Award Honor Book. She leads workshops nationally, in Zuni Pueblo and in New Mexico public schools. She lives in the North Valley. Visit Betsy at www.listeningatthegate.com (older readers) and www.betsyjames.com (younger readers).
