Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Wants YOU to Publish

We know you want more than a weekend filled with classes where teachers talk AT you. That’s why we provide a week-long conference filled with hands-on workshops where the faculty work WITH you on your manuscript. As a participant of a five-day workshop, you get free feedback from an agent or editor on your writing, opportunities to network with like-minded writers, and five days of afternoon breakout sessions filled with dozens of craft-specific topics designed especially for kidlit authors.

After WIFYR week, you’re not stranded for the rest of the year. We provide year-round support through multiple programs designed to help you achieve your writing and publishing goals.

Join us!
