Children and young adult fiction, Tessa Duder.
Begins Weds, 29 June, 7–9pm, 10 weeks.

Writing a book for children requires a set of skills as specific as those necessary for non-fiction or adult fiction. This 10-week course covers everything from basic principles, to helping you with work on a full-length novel. You’re invited to bring your own work, with the sessions covering plot, dialogue, the feedback process and more. Tessa will also cover the intricacies of the children’s publishing world – how to approach publishers, resources available for writers, manuscript assessment and more.

Tutor Tessa Duder is one of New Zealand’s best-known writers for children and young adults, with numerous critically acclaimed books to her credit as well as many awards. She is a passionate teacher, and has a great enthusiasm for the future of local writing for the young.
