ALMOST Everything I’ve Learned about Writing for Children Since Attending My First OCWW Workshop in 1978!

Children’s Book Author, teacher and Writing Coach Esther Hershenhorn shares writerly insights, techniques and tools gleaned these past 37 years while out and about on her Writer’s Plotline, offering heart, hope and know-how to fellow children’s book writers. No critiques for this session.

Chicagoan Esther Hershenhorn writes picture books and middle-grade fiction, teaches adult Writing for Children workshops at the Newberry Library and the University of Chicago’s Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies and coaches writers of all ages to help them tell their stories. Her latest books include S IS FOR STORY and the baby board book TXTNG MAMA TXTNG BABY. Esther also advocates for children’s book creators via her past service on the Board of Advisors of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and current service as the Illinois Chapter’s Regional Advisor Emeritus.
