Writer’s Digest University online course – Fundamentals of Writing for Children

Writer’s Digest is offering a 12-week online course for anyone interesting in writing for children. The course does not cover picture books.

Start date: October 6, 2011
Duration: 12 weeks

Course Description:
Writing for children can be both personally and professionally rewarding. It means returning to a child’s point of view, full of wonder when learning something new and letting your imagination run wild. Bright, curious young readers demand realistic compelling characters and exciting plots just as much – if not more – than their adult counterparts.

While the focus of this workshop is fiction, the basic fundamentals can be applied to children’s nonfiction as well. Work with a published children’s author to write a complete children’s story book or chapters (up to 2,000 words), for ages anywhere from five to fifteen.
