Great Writing Resources for Children’s Writers


Hello from Cullowhee, North Carolina- home of NCCAT where Joyce Hostetter and I are teaching the seminar, "Is There a Children's Book in You?" We are acting as midwives-- helping 21 talented teachers from across the state write picture books, early chapter books, and novels.

Here are some writing resources I have collected for them, as well as for any of you who are also interested in writing and publishing for children.

Wow - that's quite a wonderful list - lol. See you get to go to the best places to do workshops. I need to be in on your shirttails (so to speak) - I guess I really need to develop a platform to get me in to places like you go to. One of these days I'll be doing workshops like you do and having a blast - lol - Thanks for sharing. I have a few more places to add to your nice list (links or whatever) if you would like them. Just let me know - E :)
