Eden Mills Writers’ Festival Writing Workshop: Writing for Children with Marie-Louise Gay Writing a book for young children who cannot yet read is deceptive. How difficult can it be to write a story with fifty, two hundred or six hundred words? A manuscript barely 2, 3, or 4 pages long? Or writing for children who are beginning readers. The difficulty lies in conveying emotion, developing characters and a plot, creating an arc and captivating children with so few words. But also, creating a child’s voice or visualizing a child’s point of view when our own childhood is far behind us. Participants will be doing short writing exercises to inspire and stimulate their inner child.
