What is Summer School?

Summer school is defined as a school or a program that provides lessons during summer vacation. Studies have shown that participation in summer school has substantial beneficial effects on its participants. 

kami and sKidlit Summer School is a four week writer’s workshop that will run from July 21 through August 15. Because we (Kami and Sudipta) both enjoy teaching writing classes, we wanted to find a way to offer craft-based writing advice on a particular topic each summer. Our 2014 course is going to focus on writing great characters.

Daily blog posts by authors and writing professionals will offer inspiration and help you hone your craft. We’ll soon be announcing our “faculty”, which includes award-winning PB, MG and YA authors!

Kidlit Summer School is for anyone one who loves to write children’s literature, from accomplished writers, to those just starting out.

      It is a work at your own pace event for the most part. Just subscribe to the blog or check in daily during the event to check out the insights on character building from the great contributing authors. Other events, such as webinars are not required. If you can’t check out the posts daily, just read them when you can. So… yes to auditing and participating in any way you can!
