Join James Riley, the New York Times bestselling author of the Story Thieves, Half Upon a Time, and The Revenge of Magic series as he leads a workshop on writing for children, including: how to come up with an idea; how to come up with another idea when the first one doesn't work; why first drafts are always bad; looking into the abyss and waiting for it to look back; dealing with existential angst about never achieving your dreams; achieving those dreams anyway; and the editing process.
Riley will also be presenting a talk and reading, Fractured Fairy Tales: How to Fix Humpty Dumpty Even If You’re a King’s Horse, the prior day.
