You’ve written some picture books or books for early readers – maybe you’ve even got a stack of drafts sitting in a drawer. You know they could be better, but you’re not quite sure how. Sound like you?
Personal feedback is an effective way to sharpen and refine your work. Feedback provides valuable insight into your writing and can help you develop your editing skills and critical eye.
In this online program, award-winning author Aleesah Darlison will provide feedback on your writing for children, enabling you to hone your skills over five months. Feedback will vary depending on each submission, but it may focus on areas such as storytelling, plot, structure, characterisation, theme or voice.
Once a month, from February to June, you’ll submit either a picture book text (up to 800 words) or an early reader/chapter book text (up to 1500 words). Your tutor will provide tailored feedback, giving you time to incorporate her suggestions and advice into the next month’s submission. Each month, you can submit either new or revised writing.
You’ll also have the opportunity to read and comment on other participants’ writing. This process of giving and receiving feedback from fellow writers is an ideal way to determine what works, what resonates, what falls flat – and how to improve.
This online program takes place on a website specifically designed for writers, making it simple and easy to share your writing, give and receive feedback, and interact with fellow writers.
If you’re ready to challenge yourself and develop your skills through constructive critique and independent work, this is the program for you.
