Signups are now closed. First meeting will be on Saturday, 9 January 2016.
In January 2016, we will be writing new short stories for children, based on the book BAYONG NG KUTING (A Bagful of Kittens) by MAE ASTRID TOBIAS, published by Lampara. Stories finished during the class may be selected for an upcoming anthology.
This class is free and mostly online, with lessons delivered through email.
There will be two optional face-to-face classes.
Authors retain copyright.
We will be writing stories for children; the authors can be children or adults. 🙂
Participating authors must be free to enter a distribution agreement with the sponsor of the class, Bronze Age Media.
Date: January 9 to 30, 2016
Mentors: Kid-lit authors Gabriela Lee, Rhandee Garlitos, Robert Magnuson
We require that you read BAYONG NG KUTING before the class starts, so you know the type of story you are expected to write. (Also check out the book’s Goodreads page here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13453128-a-bagful-of-kittens)
