Children's Writing Workshop

Spring 2020

Taught By: Tor Seidler

Section: A

CRN: 1017

Credits: 4

The New School Writing Program follows the workshop method of teaching: An experienced writer-teacher gives students guidance by focusing on their manuscripts and on the creative acts of revision and self-editing, both in the workshop and during individual conferences. The program provides students with a framework and sustained blocks of time to focus extensively on their own writing. Graduate writing workshops meet once a week in a two-hour session. Workshops are all conveniently scheduled in the early evenings, Tuesday through Thursday. Graduate writing workshops may include a short assigned reading list and occasional visits by guest writers who read and discuss their work. Class sessions are principally devoted to reading and discussing students' writings for children in the form of stories, picturebook texts, 8-12 fiction or nonfiction, and teenage fiction or nonfiction. Students explore the techniques and strategies of writing and producing books for children and learn to find voices and forms for their writing and to express their ideas in styles appropriate for children's interests at different ages. Students initiate and develop projects of their own choosing.
