Writing for Children is the perfect beginner course for people who wish to write for children.
Children are discerning readers and the children's publishing industry is highly competitive. To write a children's book that will stand out on a publisher's desk, and then on bookstore shelves, you need to be aware of what is already out there, while creating something that reflects your personality.
This course will identify what makes a successful manuscript. You will discover how to craft a compelling story, memorable characters, authentic dialogue and an evocative setting. You will learn about your audience and the themes and language suited to different age groups. The course will also discuss what publishers are looking for and how to convince them that you are worth publishing.
Writing for Children is ideal for beginners. Participants are encouraged to bring along ideas for stories, novels-in-progress and/or favourite children's books and young adult novels. If you are new to writing for children and not sure where to start, this is the course for you.
The course includes:• 8-hours of intensive tuition over 4 weeks• Refreshments• A complimentary copy of a recent A&U publication• Alumni discount on all future Faber Writing Academy courses
Book soon to avoid disappointment.
