CCN : Discover Writing for Children


When a child loves a story, it can stay with them for the rest of their lives; yet children’s books are some of the most challenging books to write. This course explores what makes a book suitable for the different age groups in the children’s book market and focuses on developing ideas and stories for age 5+ readers. We’ll explore the top writing tips for each age category; including word count, taboos and expectations.

  • The exploration of the children’s book market 
  • How to plot a children’s book
