Overview

Joe Rhatigan, author of the bestselling In Print, has come up with a new and unique guide to writing that's not only instructive, but irresistible fun.

Here's the "write" way to get kids aged 10 and above excited about putting their words on the page. Throughout, there's space (ranging from a few lines to an entire page) where youngsters can actually write, and colorful graphic illustrations to capture their eyes and interest. "Story starters" encourage even the most intimidated children to begin work. Dozens of smart suggestions, from looking closely at everyday objects to searching their memories, help kids with writer's block break through the inevitable barriers to creativity. Collaborative activities and brainstorming techniques plant creative seeds that will lead to fruitful writing. Youngsters will learn why even a terrible first draft can provide the foundation for a masterpiece. They'll discover ways to grab the audience's attention, and find out time-tested editing tricks for improving skills. And because every good author wants to see his or her work in print, there are ideas on publishing, too.
