How to Publish Books for Kids about Difficult Subjects | Books@Stones | Saturday, 05. September 2020

Share Your Story is a profit for purpose publishing consultancy for aspiring authors.
Many books written for children serve to entertain a younger audience, but some are drafted to help children become aware of and even heal deeper wounds.
Join founder of Share Your Story, Michelle Worthington, at this introductory event to discuss pathways to publication for books written for children but that contain themes of trauma, death, divorce and depression. It can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. Books for children can be tools used by teachers, therapists and caregivers to make a difference in their lives.
Please bring an open mind and allow others to share their story.
Places limited to 10 attendees.
Bookings are essential.
