Writing the Breakout Middle Grade Novel

On May 29 at 1PM EDT, I’ll be teaching a Writers Digest workshop called Writing the Breakout Middle Grade Novel. Anyone is welcome to register. If you’re writing middle grade, or maybe think you are but aren’t sure, or want to learn more about what makes a great MG novel, I’d love to have you attend.


The webinar will consist of a lecture followed by a Q&A session, where I’ll answer questions from attendees live. Can’t make the live webinar? You’re still welcome to register. After the webinar, all who register will receive a link to a recording of the full webinar and Q&A session. All attendees (in real time or not) are invited to submit 500 words of the opening of their middle grade novel, which I will critique after the webinar. Instructions for sending in the critique will be emailed to you after you register.


Some topics I’ll touch on in the webinar include the elements of a great MG voice, why middle grade and middle school are not the same thing, and how to know whether the novel you’re working on is MG or YA.
