Join us for help with writing for children who are just beginning to read — learn about the needs of the children, the editors and the publishers for them!

And we’re also talking about my new book for children’s writers:

Yes! You Can Learn How to Write Beginning Readers and Chapter Books


  1. I would have loved to, but I’m not available tonight or Wednesday.

    • We’re still having the workshop on THursday, too, Tracy! And if you have to miss it altoghter, it will be archived where you can explore the links and info. Hope you can join in the fun!

  2. Hi Nancy,
    I do receive their newsletter. Will your interview be accessible from there?

    • Ii think you have to go on their site to access the archived workshop. You might want to double check if they don’t offer it in the newsletter next week.

  3. Hi Nancy,

    I attended the ICL Writer’s Retreat Workshop last week. I did all the assignments, but didn’t post my work. The assignments were fun! I wasn’t aware of the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Reader available through Microsoft. My first rewrite on the two paragraphs (Frederick Douglass) was a 5.4. I was surprised with the high number. The second rewrite was 1.1. Yeah!!

    It was a joy to be apart of your workshop. Thank you so much for your time, information and expertise. I plan on buying your newest book. God bless.



    • Hi Beth,

      Thanks for stopping in and saying “hi”! I’m so glad you liked the workshop and had fun doing the exercises, too. And how exciting to know you got the Frederick Douglass down to a 1.1. You can do it!!!!
