  1. Bullet Magic and Myth

Writing for children can be magic, a good kind of magic. But there are a lot of myths floating around to mislead hopeful writers. This rumor roundup takes a good look at conventional wisdom to see what's true and what's wishful thinking.


  1. Bullet Good Versus Great

We all dream of penning great literature, the kind that wins awards and lives forever. The majority of what's published, however, is more workmanlike than wondrous. This presentation uses actual examples to examine the qualities that lift a manuscript above the ordinary.



  1. Bullet How and Why: Writing for the Magazine Market

How does an aspiring writer break into this market? And why would a serious writer want to write for magazines, anyway? This talk offers a helpful overview for writers who would love to publish often in a variety of children's magazines.


  1. Bullet Toddlers and School Kids and Teens, Oh My!

Children come in all sizes and shapes and ages, with a multitude of interests and abilities. Audience targeting can seem like a mystifying maze. This overview will help a children's writer navigate through the confusion, identify a favorite age, and craft a manuscript to suit his or her best audience.
