In celebration of the Hawaii State Library’s Centennial Anniversary, three local children’s book authors will present “So You Want to Write a Children’s Book?” at the Hawaii State Library on Saturday, February 9 at 1:30 p.m. in the Adult Reading Room (First Floor).
Scott Goto, Sue Cowing, and Lynne Wikoff, all published members of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Hawaii Chapter, will lead a free discussion program for adults on what you should know about writing for children. The authors will share information about the craft and business of writing for children, and provide tips on how to polish your writing skills. Learn how important it is to “hook” the reader by skillful use of plot, character, dialogue, setting and timing.
The Library’s Edna Allyn Room for Children, the Language, Literature and History Section, and the Hawaii Center for the Book are hosting this one-hour session.
