Writing Chidren's Books offers teachers a chance to work on their own writing. While earning three hours of graduate credit (for ENGL 551), participants spend much of their time writing and discussing their writing with peers in response groups. This course also features a variety of guest authors who share stories about their own experiences with writing chidren's books, then lead discussions about writing in different genres, for different purposes and audiences, and under different constraints. Teachers in Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Beaufort, and Colleton counties are welcome to apply.

Here's a peek at what the class will include:

- published authors & illustrators as guest speakers

-discussions of how to fit your writing process into your busy schedule

-class textbooks provided at no cost to you

-instruction to guide you through manuscript formatting But there's much more!
