How To Write For Children And Get Published by Louise Jordan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The fully updated essential guide to writing for children. Huge numbers of people want to write for children but it is notoriously difficult to find a publisher in this increasingly competitive area. Children's publishing has its own set of rules and demands. This comprehensive and fully updated book tells you all you need to know, in a new edition that offers the very latest information on market trends, such as self publishing. Written by an acknowledged expert on children's publishing, this inspiring, practical and wide-ranging guide takes the reader step-by-step through all the different markets for children's books including: picture books, educational books, series, teenage fiction, short stories, poetry, non-fiction and the fast-changing multi-media market. Louise Jordan gives valuable advice on: developing ideas, themes and style; presenting proposals and manuscripts; approaching publishers and agents; what you need to know once your book has been accepted for publication. In addition, the author advises on how to make your work stand out from the crowd and appeal in a unique way to commissioning editors and to the intended audience.
