Workshop Details: Pennwriters Area 2 is hosting a day-long workshop with award-winning children's author Lindsay Barrett George and "New York Times" best-selling author Maria V. Snyder. New or experienced writers will learn what makes a good children's or young adult book, how to survive in the publishing world, and how to avoid sounding like an adult writing for young people.

Lindsay Barrett George will present her workshop "Puppies, Pumpkins, and Publishing" from 10:00-12:00.

There will be a bag lunch at noon. After lunch, participants will have the option of having the opening two pages of their work-in-progress critiqued by the speakers.

Maria V. Snyder will present her workshop "Maria's Nitpicks: The Basics and Not so Basics" from 1:30-3:30. The workshop is appropriate for anyone currently writing a book or planning to write one.

Cost: $35 for Pennwriters members
