Writing Children's Books


The children's book ìmarketî has expanded and contracted several times since the early 1990's, becoming a booming industry, driven by various trends and marketing strategies. It may seem daunting, but publishers are continually looking for new talent. This course explores writing for a variety of children's genres, from picture books, easy-to-reads, chapter books, novels, and non-fiction. Course explores the art of storytelling and how characterization, theme, plot development, dialogue, and point of view create unique and interesting stories. Examines the latest trends in the children's book marketplace, the importance of the editing process, how your manuscript is handled by illustrators, and how to submit your manuscripts to editors. Also, covers various forms of fiction (folk and fairy tales, realism and humor, contemporary issues faced by today's young readers) and non-fiction (biography, how-to/craft/puzzle, and educational materials, not forgetting class projects!). This course can be taken concurrently with Illustrating Children's Books.
