Writing for Young Readers
Learn how to develop a graphic, middle grade, or young adult novel.
Have you thought about writing a novel for children but don’t know where to start? This class is for you—whether you are writing a graphic, middle-grade, or young adult novel. Over the course of six weeks, we focus on process over product and use tools to help you develop the arc of your story. We explore character development, setting, plot, point of view, and evergreen themes.
By the session’s end, you have a road map to help you turn your ideas into manuscripts. Jumpstart your creative writing for 2024 and join us on this collaborative journey to develop the story you’ve wanted to write.
Meet Your Instructor: Michele Prestininzi
“New beginnings! There’s nothing more exciting than the beginning of a new story. I love helping writers turn their ideas into tangible storylines. It‘s my favorite part of the creative process, and I feel honored to be on this journey with my students and see their stories take off.”

Our organization was founded to help amplify the voices of those who are often not heard—including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQIA+ individuals, and other historically marginalized groups. We have witnessed how writing and sharing stories has the power to effect change by generating greater love, compassion, and empathy in the listener. In all of our programs, we provide an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment. We do not tolerate writing that perpetuates harmful stereotypes or fuels hate. Failure to align with our philosophy can result in your removal from class.
