Developing Your Character's and Writer's Voices at the Children's Book Academy

Developing Your Writer's AND Your Character's Voice(s)

Time and time again, you'll hear editors and agents talk about how they are looking for a strong writer's voice or that the submission wasn't quite it because the character's needed stronger voices. Strong voice can be an elusive and abstract thing.

So how do you see it, find it, and write it? And what is voice anyway?

Well to meet this need, Random House editor Kelly Delaney and I (Dr. Mira Reisberg) created a presentation that addressed this very subject. We spent many days preparing the materials and then after the presentation was over, spent many more hours editing the video recording down to make them as clean, concise, and as helpful as possible without wasting your time.

Here's a wee bit about the two of us...

But, Rather Than Just Sell the Video, We Decided to Add:

  • Tons of Extra Value with 5 Additional Resources
  • Worksheets
  • Templates

To make it really easy to develop your own voice and your character's voices as well.

We are selling this insightful and tangibly helpful self-study training for only $49 right here with this link and hope that you take the main lessons to heart to become the best writer that you can be.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of formats will there be?
Most of our courses are a combination of lessons, worksheets, and interviews with experts. Sometimes these are in video format, other times not. With interactive courses, there is also a very active Facebook community page and weekly critiquing webinars, making it very lively and lots of fun. It is a multi-modal approach that works well for different people learning styles.
Who will benefit from this class?
Anyone who has a passion or interest in writing or illustrating books for children.
When does the class start?
If this is an instant access course, access starts today for a full year. If it is an interactive course, the dates will be towards the top of the page with 6 months of additional access, which often ends up being much more. Interactive courses also often include an e-book of course materials.
Are there any specific time requirements?
No. The only time sensitive areas are if you are in an interactive course and want to submit your work for a live webinar critique, there is a specific deadline, and if you join one of the optional critique groups you need to honor your group's critiquing timeline. The weekly webinars also happen at a specific day and time provided in advance, but if you can't make it live, they are also recorded for later viewing.
Do you offer refunds?
We are so sorry, but there are no refunds. Because we give bonus passwords or access to the course at the time of purchase, it is impossible to offer refunds. We appreciate your understanding. However, we do offer a 100% learning money back guarantee for interactive courses, that if you read the lessons, participate and do the work, and at the end of a year, don't feel that you learned a lot, we will refund your money in full.
What do I do if I have further questions?
You can email Mira directly at [email protected] with the title of the course in the subject head.
