An Introduction to Writing for Children - an online course

This course involves 7 set modules covering the following topics, the golden rules of children’s fiction, plot development, audience, themes and emotions in relation to children’s lives, character building, dialogue and setting. 

You will be provided with exercises, suggested reading and a marked assignment for each module, for which I will provide full feedback and suggestions for further development. There is no time limit for completion of the course. 

Focus your writing on one of these areas

  • Writing for younger readers
  • Writing for middle-grade readers
  • Writing for YA readers

or have a go at writing for all three.

Price for the full course ~ £350

(Or payable in instalments with each module.)
