Would you like to discover the secrets successful authors use to write bestselling children's stories?
riting a children’s book is a life’s ambition for many people. Yet, few ever achieve that dream.
Why? Most, burdened by family and work commitments, simply don’t have the time and energy left to write. Others carry wonderful ideas around in their head, yet have no clue how to turn them into words that children would want to read.
If this is you, then we understand exactly how you feel. There’s nothing more frustrating than having a good idea for a children’s story, yet not being able to get started.
Tired, frustrated and disheartened, you end up feeling like a failure because you can’t seem to find the time, energy or inspiration to write. And when you do, the words never seem to turn out the way you wanted them to.
If you've always wanted to write a children's story but have struggled to get started… here’s hope!
Until now, the only ways to learn the ‘secrets’ of writing children’s stories was to attend expensive classes, hire a writing coach to guide you, or piece together scraps of information from across the internet.
The big problem with these methods is they can be incredibly expensive, hugely time intensive, and completely overwhelming.
For a beginner children’s writer, it just isn’t worth the risk.
These problems made us appreciate the need for a practical, in-depth course that anyone could follow in their own time and at their own pace.
We persuaded some of the world’s top children’s authors and editors to share their secrets and work closely with us to create a superb step-by-step course packed with expert guidance for all those would-be writers.
