Author Dee Garretson will speak about how to use mentor texts to inform your own writing.
Many good writers struggle to overcome the final step to finding an agent or a publisher. Learn how to analyze your favorite books to make your manuscripts stand out. We’ll look at character development, dialogue, backstory and setting description in some popular middle grade and YA books to see how authors hook their readers early and keep them reading.
Dee Garretson writes chapter books (Boxcar Children) middle grade and young adult fiction. Her books have been nominated for ten state young readers’ choice awards. Look for her latest book, STATION FOSAAN, the first of a YA science fiction trilogy in April, 2017.
