Writing non-fiction for children is one of my favorite kinds of writing.
In the past year, I’ve written three non-fiction books, one large non-fiction text book chapter, and numerous non-fiction magazine articles all for young readers. I have at least three non-fiction manuscripts waiting for the right publisher to fall in love with them.
Non-Fiction is an essential and exciting part of children’s literature.
It’s also a great way to develop your writing career. If you are interested in making a living as a children’s writer, non-fiction is a great place to start.
And if you’re like me, it’s an easy way to keep learning about the world around us.
I was so grateful that SCBWI offered so many session for non-fiction writers at the annual summer conference in Los Angeles. During the conference, I connected with other wonderful non-fiction lovers! And, I also learned about some excellent websites for non-fiction writers. I have added these to my weekly “to read” list. You should, too!
