Good children’s writing, like all good writing, requires a tightly-crafted plot, memorable characters, and sentences that leap off the page. But when writing for children you also need to think about lots of other stuff, too. How to create a story that will resonate with younger readers. How to deal sensitively with the problems and emotions of childhood. How to write humour that children will respond to and create stories that will keep them turning the pages long past their bedtime. How to really nail that magical talking lizard character. You know, serious writing stuff. 

If you’re writing for children and young adults, if you’d like to write fiction for children and young adults, or if you’ve ever gone looking for magical lands at the back of your bedroom wardrobe, this might be the course for you.

We’ll only be running it once this year, so secure your spot early!
