Writing Children's Fiction

a9ae0608-d0a0-4afd-aa0e-2da4b0e0dad0

As you would expect from a Writers’ & Artists’ Companion this is an informed and informative guide to its genre. But it is also a highly creative book, providing the print equivalent of attending a writing for children seminar.

It discusses the challenges of each of the range of categories that comprise the children’s market with good practical advice for writing for them all. The next section of the book presents advice from over twenty bestselling children’s authors (just as you would expect presentations at a seminar) such as Michael Morpurgo, Valerie Bloom and Celia Rees. They all pass on tips that they have learned from their own experience. Then come the writing workshop features that cover everything from characterisation and dialogue to pacing and structure and on to advice about finding your publisher. All this is supported by Top Tips boxes, exercises, and practical examples, that give the book a lively, approachable feel that you would expect from a seminar.
