Just to let you know that there are still some places left on my Writing for Children course at the Irish Writers’ Centre in Dublin this weekend.
This two-day course will cover the basics of storytelling and the specific aspects of writing for children and young adults. Areas that will be examined include how to generate ideas, how to use observation, description of both character and setting, using dialogue and ensuring a good pace and plot. There will also be a focus on how to tailor your writing for different age groups and practical exercises, including a final writing task. I’ll also be giving tips on how to get published and how to market your books once you get published.
