9781863733670: On Writing Books for Children (A Little Ark Book)

This guide covers all aspects of writing fiction for children, from getting started to refining subtle details of technique. It deals with many types of story, from picture books to novels for teenagers, from realism to high fantasy. The author emphasizes that there are no rules and no advice that fits all cases. What she offers is a guide to the many literary tools writers can use, and her insights into the process of distilling ideas and experience into potent stories for children. Using brief exercises throughout, she helps new writers focus on different aspects of technique. Her examples of good and bad practice are illuminating - and often amusing.
