Live Webinar: Mastering Middle Grade

My popular Writer’s Digest webinar Mastering Middle Grade returns on October 11, 2018!

Mastering Middle Grade: Writing, Revising, and Pitching Your Middle Grade Novel includes a live presentation (plus access to the recorded version for a year), a Q&A session (where all questions will receive a response), and a critique of your query letter and the first 1000 words of your middle grade manuscript. It’s going to be a great webinar for writers interested in the middle grade category who want to take their writing to the next level.
