Writing for middle grade readers is an incredibly rewarding experience – magic is made when such earnest readers engage with an author’s work. With New York Times bestselling author and Newbery Honor recipient, Kirby Larson, workshop participants will spend the day exploring the key elements of successful middle grade fiction, through conversation, examples from published work and in-class writing exercises. Come prepared to channel your inner 11-year-old! Substantial doses of humor and chocolate included. 

 Kirby Larson is the acclaimed author of the 2007 Newbery Honor Book, Hattie Big Sky, and its sequel, Hattie Ever After. In addition to the Dogs of WWII series-- which includes Duke, Dash (Scott O’Dell Historical Fiction Prize), Liberty, and Code Word Courage-- she has written The Friendship Doll, The Fences Between Us and Audacity Jones to the Rescue and Audacity Jones Steals the Show (an Edgar award nominee).

With good friend Mary Nethery, Kirby has written the award-winning Two Bobbies: A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship and Survival (illustrated by Jean Cassels) and the New York Times bestseller, Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine and a Miracle.
