Children's writers come join us!
This is a group for beginning as well as advanced writers. Writing for kids can be challenging. Let's make this a place where we can bounce ideas and stories off each other.

Only books that are ages born to twelve years are to be posted. I will remove any that are for an older audience.

1- Don’t preach to your readers or try to moralize, the story will come off as heavy handed.

2- Unless you are an illustrator yourself, publishers tend to want to choose their own illustrators. They usually have a bank of artists that they like to use and they don’t necessarily want to work with your friend/aunt/neighbour etc

3- If the story is over 1000 words, it is probably too long. Just as an example, Where The Wild Things... mehr anzeigen

Gwen Steel AKA Gwenna D'Young has a website where authors with a published book or on their way to publishing mindset or even one who has the knack of being a reader and a helper - putting together books is an art. Do you have a skill other than writer - you are a promoter or an interviewer or a proof reader or an editor or a publisher. What is you strength and skill?

I am SO sorry that I have not been active in this group the past couple of years. It's just my family has been having many people die and my mom just recently had heart surgery.

Although all those things happened, there is still some very good things happening to me in my life like my sister graduated this past school year! I'm so proud of her and I'm going to be graduating high school in 2016! Also my little brother is... mehr anzeigen

No, I haven't heard of it Chris. Thank you for telling me about it though. It seems interesting.

Also, I very much agree that an Occupational Therapist is a very caring and rewarding job.

I picked the occupation because I knew I would have time to do my artwork between my... mehr anzeigen

"I might be shy, and a very soft spoken person at first (which I am working on very hard)..."

Don't change too much, Ashley. I believe the above is a great skill to have, especially for interview purposes and with the job you are proposing to undertake. :))

Really? I never thought about it that way, thank you. ^___^

Janice Abel's, delightful book was written for newspaper publication and has been read and loved by children and adults of all ages.

Joshua's Visitor http://www.bookrix.com/_ebook-janice-abel-joshua-039-s-visitor/ This is a five chapter serial story for newspaper publicaton. Each chapter is short and normally read with different issues. Though I hope it has adult appeal, it is written for 9-12 year old.
