Cumming Library

Cumming Meeting Room

Join award-winning author Lola M. Schaefer for a 90-minute workshop where you will brainstorm marketable ideas, practice the elements of craft, and work on character, plot, and conflict. Whether you’re interested in writing picture books, easy readers, or middle grade novels, you will walk away with tools that will help you begin and sustain your writing to completion.

Bring a work-in-progress, or simply start fresh at the workshop.

Lola M. Schaefer has published more than 280 books for children with trade, school/library, and classroom publishers. Many of her picture books have been translated into other languages from Russian to Korean to French. Her latest picture book is The Bear and The Star (Greenwillow Books, 2019). When Lola is not at home writing, you may find her offering a keynote or break-out session at a literacy or writing conference. To learn more, visit www.lolaschaefer.com.

This program is presented in partnership with the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
