If you are new to children's writing, you may feel like there is a lot to learn.. and there IS! There are some good courses available through providers like the Institute of Children's Literature and Writer's Digest Books. The issue with these courses for most writers is their cost. You can teach yourself all you need to know about writing children's books by purchasing books used to teach writing skills. If you'd like a less expensive route, and are capable of self-teaching, the following books are recommended for consideration:
Idiot's Guide to Publishing Children's Books
Reading some, or all of these books, rather than spending several hundred dollars for one of the popular courses will help you write better stories for publication. By reading these books before you begin submitting, you will also gain critical skills that will help you get your first contract.
Best of luck with your writing and I hope this site, the tips within, and the resources we've provided will help you further your career as a children's writer.
Also, please note: I
am an author, not a publisher nor an agent, so I do not accept submissions
of any kind. Neither do I make recommendations regarding where
to submit your manuscript. I wish you the BEST of luck in your publishing
