Park University is excited to launch the Nonfiction Writers Intensive (NWI) workshop series in collaboration with The Little Fig. NWI’s goal is to build a collection of stories that showcase subjects of cultural, linguistic, ethnic, and gender diversity. Open to authors worldwide, whether they are published or not, this 16-week-long intensive enables each author to be successful in creating a nonfiction picture book—from concept to submission-ready completion.
The January 2019 NWI focuses on creating picture book biographies that depict noteworthy yet untold stories of success and entrepreneurship. Participants are selected through a juried process, as class size is limited. Manuscripts completed through this comprehensive workshop will be reviewed by The Little Fig and may be offered a contract for multilingual publication.
