Look Inside


The Writing for Children ebook is aimed at writers or people who want to write for a young audience but aren't quite sure where to start. Get to know more about writing for this age group, including the use of appropriate language and context.

Some children embrace reading as a joy; and for others it is a chore. When it is a joy though, it becomes easier to learn, becoming something they want to do rather than something they are obliged to do. Children who are passionate about reading will want to read more.

Children’s writers who are able to engender a passion for reading in their young readers will have far more success because they will have readers who want to read what they write.
