Nancy Sanders loves to inspire God’s scribes how to be ones who hang out with Jesus so He can send them out to the world.
Are you a kid at heart? Do you still remember your favorite childhood books? Have a desire to write children’s books or maybe you are in the middle of writing one now?
If this describes you, then you need to be at the OC Christian Writers Conference being held in Newport Beach, May 18-20th. There will be three sessions on how to write for children and two will be led by award winning children’s author, Nancy Sanders.
One of the sessions, Children’s 1st Page Critique, will give participants a hands-on experience in understanding what compels editors and readers to read beyond the first page of any manuscript. Several participants will have the opportunity to have their submission critiqued by Nancy and the class. Nancy will also be available for a one page critique to conference attendees, based on time availability.
In addition to her session on what makes a great first page to your manuscript, Nancy will also be leading a session on writing humor for kids. She will teach simple strategies any writer can use, even if you’re one of those people who just can’t tell a joke. Whether you want to add tidbits of tickles to a serious story for children or want to write books that make kids laugh so hard they fall out of their chair in a fit of giggles and gut-belly laughs, this workshop will teach you how.
Nancy Sanders is a bestselling and award-winning children’s author who has over 80 books published with houses such as Concordia, Tyndale, Standard, Barbour, Scholastic, and Chicago Review Press. In addition, she writes feature fiction and nonfiction for Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse Jr.
