The folks at Duckbill are conducting a workshop on writing for children. If you've been following the books being published by Duckbill, you'll notice that some of the authors were participants of the previous workshop held by them. So, if you've been toying with the idea of sharing your stories with the world, this workshop may be of interest :

Duckbill is happy to announce the next in their series of workshops on writing for children.

Duration: Friday, July 17 to Sunday, July 19 2015, 9.00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m

Number of participants: Maximum 20

Conducted by: Anushka Ravishankar and Sayoni Basu

Scope of the Workshop:

Fiction for children; the target ages can be anything between 7 and 14 years. We are not, therefore, working with picture books or YA books. The workshop is structured to give an overview of contemporary children’s literature, genres and trends, and an understanding of the craft of writing for children. The goal is to enable each participant to explore the kind of stories that they want to tell. The participants have the option of submitting a synopsis and/or a few chapters of a book they want to write. We will give one-on-one feedback on each submission.
