Craft of Writing, Fiction, Publishing, Writing Intensive


A well-written kids' book should strike a balance between depth and levity, humor and emotion, reality and whimsy. Join N.D. Byma, author of more than 14 children’s books, as you learn how to craft a fun and appealing narrative that will speak to readers of all ages.

N.D. Byma's books are aimed at children from infancy to teenagehood, with titles like "The Letter" for kids 3-5, and "The Barely Believable Adventures of Molly and Fritz: Brussels Sprouts and Zombies" for kids 6-16.
