Writing for Children

A 9‑week Boot Camp Class

If you want to:

  • learn a little bit about the publish­ing world
  • dabble in various formats and genres
  • talk to and learn from other writers
  • and practice writing a good first page

then, the course Writing for Children may be a great begin­ning for you. I just began teach­ing this course through Ed2Go last year, and welcome begin­ners, people who are strug­gling with their first pages, and people who just want to learn more about children’s books.

This course has helped students find and validate their process as writers and discov­er new formats and genres. It has also helped them discov­er whether picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels or young adult novels are right for them or whether the voice of their charac­ters belong elsewhere. And, in some cases, it has helped students decide if children’s publish­ing is right for them.

The course is $99 through Ed2Go and you can find more infor­ma­tion about regis­tra­tion at the follow­ing link —
