Live Chat: Future Writers

Posted by at 5:34 pm in Live Chats | Permalink


We know that many of you are amazing writers and plan to be authors when you grow up. The STACKS supports you 100%! So the topic for the next live chat will be writing tips for all you future authors (and current authors!) out there. Come to the chat and share your tips and ask your questions for other kid writers. Where do you get your inspiration? How do you come up with good plot and character ideas? What do you do when the dreaded writer’s block hits? Come to the chat and talk about writing with us.

BTW, STACKS staffers have met lots of published authors — it’s one of the perks of working at Scholastic — and we will be sharing some writing tips that we’ve picked up from them.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 20, 2010 6-7 p.m. ET (3-4 p.m. PT)
TOPIC: Writing Tips
