Writing for kids seems easy, but is it? What does it take to write one of these tiny tomes for young readers and their parents? And what do we mean by the term “children’s book,” anyway? Join children’s author Alison Pearce Stevens to learn about the world of children’s literature. Four online class sessions will provide an introduction to the various types of children’s literature. Homework and discussions will expand on information presented. You will leave with a solid understanding of kidlit, what it takes to write for this audience, important resources, and some leads on how to break into the industry.

Alison Pearce Stevens is the author of Rhinos in Nebraska: The Amazing Discovery of the Ashfall Fossil Beds (Henry Holt).

Her next book, Animal Climate Heroes (Henry Holt), comes out Spring 2023. She is also the Regional Advisor for the Nebraska region of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
