For their June Writing Show, James River Writers is teaming up with Richmond Young Writers and the Girls of Summer to present Writing for Girls. We will discuss what it means to write for girls–both young and not-so-young.
• Does it mean your protagonist is only female?
• Does it mean your readers can’t be boys?
• How do diversity and gender roles play into developing children’s and YA (Young Adult) fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that resonates with today’s girls?
Rebekah Pierce will moderate the discussion. JRW is excited to welcome Sarah McGuire, author of the debut novel VALIANT, to the stage and to introduce Odessa Hott, who is a Richmond Young Writer.
The Writing Show, described as Inside the Actor’s Studio meets the New York Times bestseller list, happens live in Richmond the last Wednesday of the month. The host is James River Writers, a nonprofit whose mission is to build community by connecting and inspiring writers and readers in central Virginia.
