KIDLIT 101

Understanding the Children's Fiction Market


So you have this great book idea for kids… But is it a picture book, chapter book, middle-grade, or YA—and what do all those terms even mean? Whether you’re a new writer or an experienced author interested dipping your toe in the growing Kidlit market, author Fleur Bradley will explain the ins and outs, how to write for kids (like how to format a picture book, word count and content for each segment), and what to understand about marketing to the young set, from practical experience. This is an in-depth A-to-Z look at the Kidlit market, from writing to marketing and publishing. By the end of the workshop, participants will have brainstormed loglines or book ideas to start their Kidlit project.
