Nonfiction Writers Intensive
Tell The Untold Story

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 8-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. Manuscripts completed through this comprehensive workshop will be reviewed by The Little Fig and may be offered a contract for multilingual publication.
