Writing for Children – Tips

My very first book was Kids Can Cook, published in 1997 by a small children’s publisher called Children’s Press. I’ve also written books for younger children and age 10+. And I’d like to share what I’ve learned about writing for younger readers with you.

I’ll also interview some  of my favourite children’s writers and ask them for their writing tips. I hope it’s helpful!

Coming soon:

Judi Curtin

Chris Judge (on writing award winning picture books)

Derek Landy

Tip 1 (and probably the only one that matters) – read brilliant children’s books.

Lots more writing tips to come!
