Pippi Longstocking. Harry Potter. Diary of a Wimpy Kid. What do these books have in common, besides being highly popular? They are middle grade novels, meant for readers ages 8-12. In this class we will explore what it means to write for this age group.

The four sessions will be half lecture and half workshop. This class is open to writers 16 and older.

Beginning writers are welcome, but all students will be asked to share the first pages of a work-in-progress. Suzanne promises to deliver laughter, inspiration and chocolate.
