Develop the Skills You Need to Sucessfully Write for Children.
The scope of children’s writing is immense; from the things children are required to read at school, to the things they choose to read on computer screens and in printed publications at home.
This e-book is intended to expand how children’s writers think about their job; helping them to see not only how to write more effectively, but also places where they might write, and things they might write about that they may not have given much prior thought to.
