Premiere of SCBWI Master Class: Richard Peck

The second SCBWI master class On Writing the Novel for Young Readers is with Richard Peck. Linda Sue Park is introducing his master class. He's written close to 50 titles, won a number of awards including the Newbery. She's reading first lines from some of his books (A Long Way From Chicago, A Teacher's Funeral, Fair Weather).

He covers plot, character, setting, language dialog, why he believes in writing in first perons and why he believe all great writers are first readers. Plus he reads aloud from a brand new novel.

And now we watch...
