Get Started in Writing for Children: Teach Yourself
Get Started in Writing for Children will help you at the very beginning of the creative journey to gain confidence and find inspiration, and then support you in the completion of your first piece of children's literature, whether it's a picture book, a middle-grade story or a young adult novel. Each chapter includes a central writing exercise and four shorter ones, while key quotes, key ideas and focus points will be clearly signposted and will summarise important concepts and advice. At the heart of each chapter is the 'Workshop', a key exercise in which you will gain a deeper insight into the craft of writing for children. In addition to coverage of the key categories and their conventions, this book includes substantial information on getting established in the writing community, gathering a fan base and pitching your work to publishers.
