When writing for children it’s important to ask yourself if it will contain the all-important ingredients: spark, enthusiasm, wonder, curiosity? Children don’t want to read about what an adult thinks they’d enjoy. Children want to read about what they actually enjoy. Janet Love Morrison offers this two-hour workshop to help writer’s gain clarity when writing for young readers.
Janet Love Morrison is an award winning author (Canada’s Legendary Ski Team – The Crazy Canucks, with a foreword by Peter Mansbridge) and a member of the Editors’ Association of Canada. She started editing in 2004 for Masters’ World magazine in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Since then she has embraced a wide variety of texts including manuscripts, websites, theses, and more.
Her writing has appeared in the Pique Newsmagazine, which is published in Whistler, BC, one of Canada’s famed ski resorts; the Globe and Mail, one of Canada’s two national newspapers; Ski Canada, Canada’s ski magazine; and several other publications.
