Children’s entertainer Eric Ode to lead workshop

Register now, because space is limited.

A special presentation is coming to Enumclaw for anyone interested in writing and publishing for the younger set.

The guest presenter will be popular entertainer Eric Ode, who will lead a full-day workshop highlighting the ins and outs of working in the youth entertainment industry.

Ode is a national award-winning children’s singer/songwriter and a published author and poet.

His “Create A Story” workshop, sponsored by the city of Enumclaw and 4Culture of King County, is planned for Nov. 29.

The workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and includes topics like working with editors, finding opportunities for publishing and emphasizing picture books. An afternoon session tackles subjects like opportunities to write for children’s poetry anthologies, writing for magazines and education curriculum.

The workshop is free but only the first 20 adults and youth (12 and older) will be admitted. All must preregister by emailing glaturner@ci.enumclaw.wa.us.
