Humber and Holland colleges partner for P.E.I. kidlit workshop

Toronto’s Humber College and Charlottetown’s Holland College are joining forces to present The Insider’s Guide to Writing and Publishing for Young Readers, a workshop for aspiring and established kidlit authors. The workshop, led by former Penguin Canada president and Humber’s creative book publishing program developer Cynthia Good and Annick Press co-founder Rick Wilks, will be held July 10–11 at Holland’s Prince of Wales Campus in Charlottetown.

The workshop will feature a writing portion, which offers tips on getting published, support in developing outlines, and feedback sessions for writers with draft manuscripts. Each day’s sessions will also include a publishing segment, aimed at surveying the publishing landscape, evaluating traditional and self-publishing models, and constructing query letters.

Workshop registration is now open. Contact MHDriscoll@hollandcollege.com for information on registration and on-site accommodation, and Cynthia.good@humber.ca for more information on workshop content.
