Writing for Young Readers

A Pen In Each Hand

By Billiard

Write a story suited for young readers. If you draw, try some illustrations too. If picture books aren’t your style, try something for a middle-grade or YA audience.

Haven’t got a great idea for a book for young readers? That’s okay—start with some brainstorming. Jot down some ideas for things you think might be interesting. If you have (or know any) kids, talk to them about what they like. Or maybe think about things that interested you when you were young. Make a list, then do some freewriting to get the creative juices flowing!
