This 3-credit-hour class will give you the structure you need to get you writing and the tools you need to work toward publishing your writing. Participants will discuss current trends in literature for children and young adults as you workshop your own writing. The class will also look at tools to keep you working on your craft even after our course is over. The class is taught by Dr. Kathryn Hansen, an assistant professor at The Citadel.
