CREATING NON-FICTION BOOKS FOR TODAY'S DIGITAL AGE

This masterclass will provide practioners with practical approaches on how to create impactful non-fiction books for children and youth of today’s digital age. One of the most common issues facing educators is how to engage students with content in a manner that they will be excited by. Award-winning editor Lisa Charleyboy will lead this session with pro-active and practical solutions for the entire production process to achieve these results. An interactive component will bring out the inner creative in all those in attendance!
