Children's writers come join us!
This is a group for beginning as well as advanced writers. Writing for kids can be challenging. Let's make this a place where we can bounce ideas and stories off each other.

Only books that are ages born to twelve years are to be posted. I will remove any that are for an older audience.

1- Don’t preach to your readers or try to moralize, the story will come off as heavy handed.

2- Unless you are an illustrator yourself, publishers tend to want to choose their own illustrators. They usually have a bank of artists that they like to use and they don’t necessarily want to work with your friend/aunt/neighbour etc

3- If the story is over 1000 words, it is probably too long. Just as an example, Where The Wild Things... Show more

I am SO sorry that I have not been active in this group the past couple of years. It's just my family has been having many people die and my mom just recently had heart surgery.

Although all those things happened, there is still some very good things happening to me in my life like my sister graduated this past school year! I'm so proud of her and I'm going to be graduating high school in 2016! Also my little brother is... Show more

Janice Abel's, delightful book was written for newspaper publication and has been read and loved by children and adults of all ages.

Joshua's Visitor This is a five chapter serial story for newspaper publicaton. Each chapter is short and normally read with different issues. Though I hope it has adult appeal, it is written for 9-12 year old.

This is a great story, but then all of Janice's stories are intriguing - one of the best writers on site and we have quite a few.
