Nonfiction Improvisational Writing

Miranda Paul, Author, Agent at Erin Murphy Literary Agency

Nonfiction is Experimentation! Experimentation is Fun! And it sells—nonfiction as a whole makes up a good percentage of children’s books that are published every year. It’s time to toss out old notions of boring encyclopedias and too-thick textbooks of our youth and get ready to draft some short-and-sweet nonfiction for kids. This session will get you playing with words and topics in a way that allows creativity to rule. We’ll take a backwards approach—instead of researching first, we’ll write first, and work on sculpting unique skeletons of nonfiction manuscripts that kids will totally love. The research can come later! Please bring something to write with and a very open mind.
