Writing a children's book - Caroline Foster

This is an extract from the book From The Start: Caroline Foster, the beginner's guide to professional non-fiction literature, will discuss how to create a book for them. Typing for this group of people is complicated and perhaps more complicated than many authors imagine. To understand the readership's peer group is the most basic element of typing for this group.

As you' re saying for early reader is very different from what you would say for the 10 to 15 year series or even for the 12 to 20 year series(s). It' always important, regardless of gender, to know who you want to type for before you start and why you put everything you want to types.

More importantly, it is important to be aware of this before you write for the children's magazine, because young people can be very upsetting. Kids have a built-in tedium, they know when they are being taught or addressed, and they are quickly shut down by the misuse of speech, old-fashioned concepts or authors who are not familiar with today's outlooks.

You ask yourself if I'm gonna do it:) This may be a mixture of motives, but be aware of your motives before you do. You can then choose the right writer's group. These can be kids who are one or two years old and need an grown-up to tell them stories.

We then have the following categories - five to eight, eight to twelve and your young readership. There is a large gap in the teen or young adults markets between 12 and 20 years of age for a newcomer. However, it is not the reading audience's age which matters here, it is the ability of the audience to determine the reading standard.

No matter what your chosen ages or groups, you have to consider that kids move at different speeds - they come in all forms, heights, personality styles and have different developmental states. For example, a kid of eight or nine could be easy for a 12-year-old to learn to read, while another kid of eight would like to learn to study a much younger school.

So your goal is to work for the wider group. In order to find out how to do this, it is important to do research by studying and analyzing the volumes young people today study (don't expect the volumes you study at your own old age to remain pertinent! It will help you to recognize formulas.
