Writing for Children
Our Writing for Children course presents an overview of the children’s writing genre, with an emphasis on understanding the various types of children’s books; picture books, chapter books (e.g. early readers and middle-grade books), and young adult fiction. It is for students who want to write for children aged 3–16 years.
Aimed at beginners and intermediate writers alike, the course teaches students how to apply theoretical knowledge to practical writing, how to succeed as a children’s author, and about the various markets for children’s books. Tutors will provide resource materials for authors to absorb and guidelines to implement in their own time.
BONUS: The last two weeks will feature round-table discussions, with HarperCollins published authors sharing their writing experience with students in a live online environment.
