Nonfiction kidlit class opportunity

Fiction writers make up their stories, but nonfiction writers dig into facts to find their story line and then use elements of fiction to enrich it. Member Lois Harris will soon teach a $49 class called "Writing for Children: Narrative Nonfiction—Creating the Story from Facts" at Skagit Valley College, where she'll address everything from back matter and characterization to voice in biographies, picture books, and middle and young adult nonfiction. The class will be held on two Thursdays, January 29 and February 5, 2015, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  Call 360-416-7638 to register for 6085 CENGL.
