About the Master Class
The first Write2Ignite Master Class for Christian Writers of Children’s and Young Adult Literature will be held Saturday, September 19, 2020. This opportunity will be virtual and will feature award-winning author Joyce Moyer Hostetter.
The full day of workshops and breakout sessions with Joyce and the Write2Ignite Team is only $79. Plus, you can absorb all the new knowledge from the comfort of your home or wherever you like to Zoom!
For me, one of the biggest draws is the inclusion of plenty of hands-on time for practicing new and improved skills, complete with immediate feedback.
If you’re ready to register NOW,
head to the Write2Ignite Registration Page.
Like many other writing conferences and book festivals, Write2Ignite made the decision to go virtual, allowing authors from anywhere to participate. With this new direction, they’ve decided to present one-day Master Classes—focused classes taught by master authors and teachers designed to help writers who want to become masters at writing for children and young adults.
One thing hasn’t changed: Write2Ignite’s focus and foundation.
Our focus is still on those who write for youth.
Our foundation is still Christ.
About the Master
I have admired Joyce and her writing for many years. Her historical fiction novels for middle grades are well written and meticulously researched.
Now, allow me to introduce you!
Joyce Moyer Hostetter lives right where many of her characters do—in rural North Carolina. She’s always on the lookout—hoping to bump into them. In the absence of a time machine that would take her to the 1940s, she immerses herself in research to discover what their world was like. Her book, BLUE won the International Reading Association Award, The NC Juvenile Literature Award and Parent’s Choice Silver Honor. It is used widely in North Carolina schools. AIM is a prequel to BLUE. COMFORT is a sequel, and DRIVE is an Okra Pick. HEALING WATER, set in Hawaii’s leprosy settlement is available via e-book.
