Writers Writing: Writing for Youth - Voice, Pace, and Respecting Your Audience

Saturday, November 2, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Dive into the subject of writing for youth.

As an adult, writing for kids and teens can feel like dabbling in another culture. We were all young once, but our memories fade and times change. How can you make sure the story you are writing will resonate with, and feel relevant to, a young audience?

Mother/daughter author duo Kim Cooper Findling and Libby Findling, authors of The Sixth Storm, dive into the subject of writing for youth in this workshop. They'll guide you through considerations of voice, theme and setting, dialogue, pacing and how to keep your overly adult attitudes well out of your own way.

Kim Cooper Findling is the publisher of Dancing Moon Press and an author, editor, journalist and teacher based in Bend, Oregon. She is a fifth-generation Oregonian, an Oregon native and an award-winning writer of stories about her beloved home state.

Libby Findling is a sixth-generation Oregonian going into her freshman year of high school. When she is not writing, Libby enjoys theater and exploring Central Oregon.
