Do you want to write the book that kids (or teens) want to read? Writing Kidlit 101 is a 10-session self-guided course that will help you learn the craft of writing fiction for children and young adults - aka kidlit.
Passionate kidlit authors & writing teachers Victoria J. Coe and Cheryl Lawton Malone share user-friendly narratives, tips and tricks, hands-on exercises, and calls to action that you can put into practice as you go. The book is based on their belief that a solid understanding of craft and a process that works for you is the best way to unlock your potential.
That's this book's secret sauce.
Coe and Malone know, because they've been there. Each dreamed of writing kidlit while juggling kids and careers. Now having sold more than 250,000 books for young readers between them, they're paying it forward.
Writing Kidlit 101 promises to educate you, ground you, and familiarize you with best practices and the realities of the market. So if you do choose to go rogue on something, you do it consciously, with authority, and for your own great reasons.
Topics include: Today's marketplace, characters, world-building, voice, dialogue, stakes, antagonists, storytelling, scenes, and structure. Further opportunities for learning are available on the publisher's website, www.writeonproductions.com.
