Writing for Young Adults - A one day workshop.

The CAA Manitoba Branch Block Breaking Workshop Series presents Writing For Young Adults, a one day workshop to be held Saturday, April 19, 1997 from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm on the 6th Floor (Solarium) of the Hammond Building at 63 Albert Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Facilitated by Ishbel Moore, this workshop will examine the necessary elements of writing, i.e. language, setting and plot and look at the growing trends in Young Adult Fiction. Different genres will be discussed as well as markets, publishers lists, support groups and writing exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring samples of work to be critiqued.

Ishbel Moore is the author of three young adult novels: The Summer of the Hand, The Medal, and Branch of the Talking Teeth, published by Roussan. Her fourth, Dolinae Mae, will be released in the spring of 1997. She is currently at work on several more stories and manuscripts. Ishbel is also current president of the Manitoba Branch of the CAA.

Located in the heart of the Exchange District, the solarium of the Hammond overlooks a myriad of beautiful historic buildings. An elegant room beaming with natural light and accented with green foliage, this is an ideal place to inspire creativity for writers. Also a convenient location for food services, several of which are nearby.

Registration fees are $45 for the full day workshop. Registration is on a first come first served basis so register early! For more information please call (204) 947-0512.
