So, you think you might want to write a series? Or perhaps you’ve already begun one, and you’re looking for tips and tricks from someone intimately familiar with the care and feeding of these unique and wonderful creatures. Join Indiana’s own Jeff Stone for a deep dive into the nuts and bolts of developing, pitching, and ultimately sustaining a world-class series. Whether you write YA, middle grade, early readers, graphic novels, or picture books—there will be something for everyone!
