Welcome

Children’s Writers of the Hudson Valley is back! Mark your calendar for our November 6, 2021, CWHV Fall Event at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Poughkeepsie.

Our faculty this year will be Alison S. Weiss, acquisitions editor at Pixel+ Ink, a publisher that focuses on series publishing and transmedia potential. This is our first workshop on series publishing and we’re very excited to have Alison at the helm.

 Kelly Going, award-winning author whose book FAT KID RULES THE WORLD was made into a movie, and another book, KING OF THE SCREWUPS, is being workshopped for Broadway!

This is an afternoon event, snacks, of course, will be provided. Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie! Some healthy alternatives will also be available.

The sessions will be lecture with some hands-on writing exercises. Please bring your work-in-progress (if you have one), your favorite writing implements and paper. If your preference is a tablet, laptop or any other personal device, we can not assume responsibility for these items.

On-site editorial critiques will be provided this year. You will have to leave the workshop for your critique, if you choose to have one.

Registration will open September 23, 2021.
