Writing Unforgettable Kids’ Books with Maaja Wentz
Stories create memories to last a lifetime.
Do you have favourite kids’ books? Childhood reading forms us, challenges us, and sticks with us for life. This upbeat workshop introduces the world of writing for young people. Explore different genres and categories of kids’ books and discover which age group resonates most with you. Whether you want to produce heirloom stories for children or grandchildren, or you dream of becoming the next J.K. Rowling, you will take away tips, tools, and inspiration. Learn about market trends and “sweet spot” genres for different age groups. There are developmental reasons why children in different age categories gravitate to specific themes and scenarios. Gain insights gleaned from educational research, digital sales statistics, and my own classroom teaching experience. Let me save you market research time by pointing out classic and trending themes that resonate with modern kids of all ages. Writing for young people is refreshing, creative, and fun. Come find your inspiration.
