Online Workshop: Understanding Young Audiences



Cath Moore




Understanding Young Audiences helps participants unpack some of the key writing tools and development techniques required to connect with a young readership. With a focus on writing for teens, the workshop will explore characteristics and traits associated with age-specific texts and the art of good narrative storytelling. This is a hands-on workshop that encourages participants to share or work on their own writing projects as part of the collaborative experience.
