We plan to hold this workshop in person at the QWF office, with up to two virtual slots available for people who are unable to come to our office. If public health conditions necessitate it, this workshop may transition to a purely online model.

Anne Renaud credits children’s magazines for helping her hone her writing skills and, more importantly, for keeping her from giving up on her dream of becoming a children’s writer. More than 200 of Anne’s non-fiction articles, poems, craft projects, and fiction stories have been published in Canadian, American, and Australian children’s magazines, including Spider, Cricket, Hopscotch, Fun for Kidz, Odyssey, Faces, Clubhouse, and Highlights for Children
