Jeramey Kraatz

Jeramey Kraatz, author of The Cloak Society series and the Space Runners series, published by HarperCollins will present: KidLit: Writing for Children and Teens
Writing for kids is an incredibly rewarding endeavor, but can be tricky. How do you know what age group your story is for and ensure your work is resonating with your audience?
In This talk, Jeramey Kraat breaks down the difference between Middle Grade and Young Adult novels and focuses on strategies to make your KidLit stories as dynamic as possible.



Karen Witemeyer, author of  The Ladies of Harper’s Station historical, inspirational romance series published by Bethany House will present: Tapping Into Personal Emotions to Create Unforgettable Characters 
No matter what genre you write, the key to creating a memorable experience for your reader is to tap into that universal element that makes us all human—emotion. The good news is that you’ve already done all the necessary research. You lived! This workshop will teach you how to take personal emotion and turn it into powerful prose that will grab a reader’s attention and capture their heart.





These workshops will be held in the Library's Community Meeting Room. 
We want you to be an active part of this program so please bring questions.  
We hope to see you for a fun and educational morning.
