Topics, Techniques, Targets: Writing for Kids and Young Adults

​David Hill will lead a workshop for people interested in writing for kids and young adults. You are welcome to bring anything you have written. No experience is necessary, only willingness to have a go.

His many published books range from studies on poetry, to teenage fiction, for which he has received numerous prizes. His first young adult novel won the 1994 Times Educational Supplement Award for Special Needs. He received the Esther Glen Award at the 1998 LIANZA Children's Book Awards for his novel Fat, Four-Eyed and Useless. He received the 2002 Children's Literature Foundation Gaelyn Gordon Award for a Much-Loved Book, the 2003 LIANZA Esther Glen Medal, the 2013 NZ Post Junior Fiction Award, and the 2013 LIANZA Librarian’s Choice Award. He has had books translated into Estonian, French and Chinese. David has contributed stories, articles, reviews and plays to newspapers,
