Writing for children: 10 ways to grow as a children’s writer

In the first of a two-part mini-series, author Amy Sparkes outlines five practical ways to grow your career as a children’s writer

Writing is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger and better it becomes. And when you spend time training it and pushing it to its full potential, the better the results will be. You may have just started out on the writing road, or you may have been writing for some time. Perhaps you feel a little disillusioned that success has not been as forthcoming as it might have been. Or perhaps you would just like to challenge yourself to make your writing (and you as a writer), even better.

In this two-part mini-series, we’re exploring ten ways to grow as a children’s author. This month we look at five practical things you can do to help improve your writing.
