What's Included

Children are one of the very best audiences for stories. But writing books for children means many things. Picture books, chapter books for early readers, middle grade fiction, and young adult novels all require specific understanding of your story’s audience and the expectations of the publishing marketplace. This class will focus on the techniques and requirements of creating books for children, including length, tone, characters, voice, age-appropriate word choice and more. Participants may bring in their own projects or work on suggested assignments from the instructor. You’ll also discuss the world of children’s publishing, including writing query letters, signing with an agent, and the intricacies of getting your children’s stories into the world.

About This Organizer

The Writers Circle offers creative writing workshops for children and adults in South Orange, Maplewood and Summit, NJ. 
 
TWC's weekly workshops for children and adults inspire, support and encourage writers at every stage and age.
For children, The Writers Circle's creative writing workshops tap into children’s natural enthusiasm and free their creative spirit. But instead of using toys or costumes, we use the most powerful creative tool ever created – the written word.


For adults, we offer morning and evening classes, mixed genre and specialized workshops. Ongoing critique, companionship and inspiration move each writer toward their own best work.

 

The Writers Circle also hosts guest speakers, community events, and our fabulous Summer Creative Writing Intensives for teens.
