Children's book class at Hugo House

Do you have a story in progress or a finished draft that needs revising? 

Clare Hodgson Meeker will be teaching a six-week writing class called Polishing your Children’s Book Manuscript on Thursday nights from 7-9pm at Hugo House in Seattle starting September 18.

Make a promise to yourself to submit your story to a publisher this year and she will help you get there. In this class, you’ll focus on strengthening story structure, dramatic tension, voice, and character development. Discover the right amount of detail and description to include for your target age group and the themes that will deepen your story and give it broader appeal. 

Students will submit one story in progress to the class and receive constructive feedback on their work from the instructor and classmates. For more information or to register, please contact Hugo House at 206-322-7030 or click here.

Clare Hodgson Meeker is an award-winning author of 10 books for children, including the Smithsonian Notable Book Lootas Little Wave Eater and Soccer Dreams: Playing the Seattle Sounders FC Way.
