Easy Reader Course–Save Your Spot!

Greetings Writers!
There are still some spots left in my upcoming online UCLA Extension course, “Introduction to Writing Easy Readers.” The course runs from April 9-June 11.
This is a great place to learn about easy readers (leveled readers) and develop your story idea into a complete manuscript. I try to create a safe, supportive, educational environment for all my students.
For more information, please click HERE or email me!

Think Writing Easy Readers Isn’t So Easy…

…well, you’re right! Writing easy readers–those books that bridge the gap between dependent reading of picture books and independent reading of novels–is not as easy at it looks! But my online writing course offered through UCLA Extension Writers’ Program will help you learn the secrets of writing this important genre of books!

The class runs from April 9-June 11. For details about the course, please click HERE.

If you have any questions about the course, just drop me an email and I’ll be happy to answer your questions!
