How to Write for Children

Saturday 22 April 1pm-3pm

Fitzroy Town Hall Reading Room

Writing for children is big business. Despite the oft forecast demise of reading, demand for quality children’s books is strong and there has been significant growth in this market over the past few years. If you’re keen to write stories that will keep children reading under the covers after lights out, if you’re interested to know more about the puzzling business of publishing, or if you harbour dreams of being the next JK Rowling or Andy Griffiths, then this course is for you.
The session will cover everything you need to get started including:
• Understanding your potential audience
• Finding and developing ideas
• Creating believable characters
• Developing plausible plots
• Using dialogue effectively
• Literary devices
• The importance of editing
• Advice on getting published
• The business of being a writer
