On this course you will:

- be introduced to the basics of writing for children and young adults
- take part in a various of short writing exercises and discussions
- explore narrative voice, plot and point of view
- learn how to find inspiration.

You’ll also explore a range of texts, looking at both Middle Grade and young adult genres.

What will I gain?

You’ll leave with a firm understanding of how to write for a younger audience, along with various samples of your writing to be developed after the course.

Practical advice on publication and submitting to competitions/children’s magazines will also be provided.

“I finished the course feeling like I had worked hard (in a pleasant way) and had learned new skills. I enjoyed the group work, feedback, relating theory to practice, and the slides and extracts.” PT

“I enjoyed the analysis of my own written work, and how it could be developed. Having access to the library was vital.”

“Learning from an experienced writer, and picking up information that I would not have got from a text book, were what I enjoyed the most.” LM
