Write Who You Are
The most valuable thing you have to offer as a writer is yourself-your knowledge, insights, perspectives, and experiences. By mining what you alone have to offer, you’ll fulfill your potential and connect deeply with your readers.

Writing & Selling Kids’ Books
Have a great idea for a children’s book? That’s a terrific place to start, but how do you progress from concept to published product? Go from getting started to the finish line in the world of juvenile publishing by exploring the requirements of every audience – baby board books, first chapter, middle-grade, and young adult – from outlining and writing, to finding an agent and/or publisher, to self-publication.

Writing for Little Ones: Ages Baby to Seven
Writing for the very littlest readers is a special challenge. It requires a way of thinking about children: what they believe and know and what they don’t yet know. It involves seeing the world from their unique perspective, even understanding how being little alters their perception of the world. To write for children the author must entertain and guide, and balance between adult communications skills and the child’s world; develop and polish your own work for very young children.

Freelancing At Any Age
Local publications are always looking for freelance writers. By adding photography to the mix, writers double their value to editors and publishers. The Internet and digital media have multiplied the opportunities for writers. Aspiring writers will learn how to apply to the thousands of writing opportunities open to them, while writers already engaged in writing projects can find new outlets for their work.
