On November 12 at 7:30 CST the Dakotas Region will offer a webinar — Tantalizingly True Stories: Writing Nonfiction that Kids–and Editors–Love
Award-winning science writer Rebecca L. Johnson will discuss her approach to writing nonfiction in today’s narrative-focused market. She will talk about market trends, different takes on narrative nonfiction, how she comes up with ideas and successfully promotes them with publishers, and how working directly with “primary sources” (think scientists!) in the field has enabled her to write firsthand about remarkable organisms and remote ecosystems.
Cost is only $15 for SCBWI members. Register at: https://dakotas.scbwi.org/events/webinar-tantalizingly-true-stories-writing-nonfiction-that-kids-and-editors-love/
