I write for young children and I also write marketing and health articles. Writing in both genres, I can tell you that writing for children can be much more challenging. When writing for children, there are guidelines to keep in mind to help your story avoid the editor’s trash pile. I recently wrote an article listing 10 rules to refer to when writing for young children; you can read it at:
While these 10 basic rules are important, there is so much more that goes into writing for children. And, it you take the time to learn and are willing to pay to get coaching, you will see amazing things.
I’ve 0nly been writing seriously for publication for about two years. And, I admit I had it all wrong at the beginning. While I am still learning, I’ve come quite a ways. I’ve come so far that I recently got a contract for one of my children’s books.
So, the questions are:
1. How do I learn to write for children?
2. How do I find a qualified coach?
For me it’s a simple answer, the Children’s Writers Coaching Club (CWCC). I joined Suzanne Lieurance’s club when I first became serious about writing for children. I can say without hesitation and with all honesty, Suzanne helped me get that contract. Her guidance, tips, knowledge, advice, lessons, teleclasses, and weekly critiques of my work all helped me to hone my craft.
What’s amazing about the CWCC is it is only $27 per month. It is probably the best out right bargain online. That’s less than a dollar a day!
And, I praise the CWCC not only for what it’s helped me accomplish, but for what just about each and every member in the club has accomplished. I can’t be positive, but I think every club member has become traditionally published with either books or magazine articles. That’s an amazing track record.
So, if you’re serious about writing for children, don’t procrastinate. And, if you can at all afford the cost, jump on board. It’s an investment in your future!
