Creative Writing is an area of study gaining much traction in English departments across the country. Many universities have writing workshops in genres such as fiction, creative nonfiction, magazine writing, business writing, and more. However, there is a glaring gap: the field of children’s literature. This work addresses the presence of this gap amongst university English departments and develops the syllabus for a course to remedy the problem: a creative writing workshop focusing on the study and writing of literature for children.
