Video: Myths About Writing for Children #KidLit #amwriting

My video workshop "Myths About Writing for Children" is available online for free!

"Writing for children is easier than writing for adults. You can't address tough topics in children's books. Children's books should be written in rhyme ..."

"The myths about writing for children are many, and sometimes contradictory. (You can't make money. You’ll get rich, like J.K. Rowling!) Learn the truth from the author of over 60 books for young people, including fiction and nonfiction, for beginning readers through teenagers."

Watch the 45-minute video here.
