Writers' & Artists' Guide to Writing for Children and YA - Writers' and Artists' (Paperback)Ms Linda Strachan (author)
The W&A Guide to Writing for Children and YA provides informed, practical advice from a successful and experienced writer of children’s books across all ages. Its coverage includes picture books through middle grade and young adult; fiction and non-fiction; books for reluctant readers and books for the education market. It is one author’s lifetime of experience distilled into an engaging guide on how to manage, kickstart or begin your writing career.
This is a heavily revised and expanded edition of Linda’s Writing for Children (2008). Much has happened in both Linda’s writing life and in the world of children’s books since then. Staying true to the essence of the original, the new edition includes more advice and experience to reflect changes in digital publishing, self-publishing, and the explosion of YA and children’s writing more broadly.
