Writing For Children Course

When You Enrol Before 13th March 2022


Children's Writing CourseThere's a common misconception about writing for children and I bet you think it too. Do you know what it is? Yep - that it's easier to write for children than it is for adults. I mean, it can't be that difficult to throw a few words together for kids, can it? And picture books must be a breeze! After all they are mainly pictures, right?


Children's books are a specialist type of writing that requires skill, creativity, imagination and lots of planning. The fewer words you have to work with the harder it is to get it right. So, the Writing for Children course is designed to help you understand your very demanding audience and produce work that's suitable for their eager, sponge-like minds.

Make Money from Writing for Children

Once you've mastered writing for children, there's no reason why you can't make money from your work. There are lots of hugely successful children's authors: Eric Carle, Julia Donaldson and Lauren Child to name but a few and there's no reason why you can't join them. Imagine having a theme park based on your book. Well, that's what one of our Writer of the Year runners-up has achieved. Read how Angela Kecojevic's book 'Hobbledown' became the inspiration for a children’s theme park and zoo called Hobbledown - a Mystical Adventure.

So, if you want to write for children this is the place to start. And, if you enrol before 13th March 2022 you'll save £25. What could be better?

Lou Carter"After completing the course I began writing as much as I could and in 2014 I was finally signed by my agent and within two months I had a contract with Bloomsbury.

To date I have nine picture book contracts all at various stages of publication. There Is No Dragon In This Story (Bloomsbury) and Pirate Stew (Orchard) both published last summer and Oscar The Hungry Unicorn (Orchard) is due to be released on Sept 20th 2018. "
