Author Pablo Cartaya is providing aid for writers who want to publish work for children and young adults.
The Children and Young Adult Industry Forum and Writing Workshop happening Thursday at Sierra Nevada College will detail some of the opportunities possible, like workshops and mentoring by award-winning novelists.
Cartaya aims to develop a program that will allow aspiring writers to work with accomplished mentors in the field while they keep their day job.
The focus is to assist people in creating published work and transition into the life of an established writer.
Instead of segregating people based on their discipline, people learning a specific genre can be embedded side-by-side with others to add to their perspective.
We hear more about the program and the benefits it provides to people who want to become writers by having the ability to meet with agents and authors face-to-face on a regular basis without having to set appointments.
