Editors, agents, and readers often cite “voice” as what draws them to an author’s work. But how do writers cultivate this elusive quality, especially when writing for children?

In this hands-on workshop with middle grade mystery author Kristen Kittscher, participants will investigate the ingredients that go into creating an authentic, compelling middle grade voice and learn techniques for channeling their own inner tweens. Attendees should come prepared to write!
