So You Want to be a Children's Author?
Advice for New Zealanders
The following recommendations assisted me over the long years when I was trying to write a publishable children's novel. I have now had seven books published, with more in the pipeline. Read lots of recent children's books... ... especially those published in New Zealand. You need to know what kinds of stories the local publishers are looking for (especially which genres, such as adventure, fantasy, history, humour, sport, family, social issues).
  • Talk to the children's librarians in big public libraries, visit specialist children's bookshops, ask children about their favourite books.
  • Read the shortlisted titles and the winners of the latest annual New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults ; and also the annual children's book awards presented by the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa.
  • Read reviews of children's books in newspapers and magazines (see my Reviews Intro Read popular local series (such as Penguin NZ's Kiwi Bites and Scholastic NZ's My Story) ; contact the publishers to ask for their Advice Sheets for writers wishing to submit stories for the series.

Writing For Children
Thinking Back To Your Childhood For many novice writers, the desire to write for children springs from their enjoyment in making up stories for their own offspring.
Telling Bedtime Stories
Despite the influence of television and computers, bedtime in a comfortingly large number of families is still synonymous with storytime. Parents still enjoy reading to their children, as they were read to when they were small and will jump at the chance to dig out their old favourites and introduce them to a brand new audience. Sometimes, however, the stories need a little alteration. Perhaps the vocabulary is too difficult or the story rather frightening. We may feel a few changes are in order and before long, we are making up our own stories, replacing the leading characters with ourselves and our children.
Entertaining The Family
Both child and parent gain a great deal from this exercise. The children enjoy being part of a nightly adventure and parents have fun letting their imagination run riot.

Write for children and young adults - writing tips and resources
Children's literature is now more popular than even before - other mediums have in fact helped children's reading habits. That means there are increased writing opportunities and markets for writers who love to write for young readers. If you have never written for younger audiences, it may be a good idea to take a short writing class or workshop to get you up to speed. Getting published is now far more easier ... you need the determination to write your book and to find a publisher. Don't let a few rejections stop you. if you don't give up, you succeed.

Writing for Children (Easy...Wait a Minute)
Writing in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, Mary-Liz Shaw does a great job of summing up the challenges of writing children’s books “The misperception that it is easy to write means children's literature attracts a larger proportion of wannabe scribes - people with a minimum of skills who think they can knock out a kids' book by dinner.”
She quotes John Warren Stewig, director of the Center for Children’s Literature at Carthage College. He says, "Most people have a warm and fuzzy and kind of inaccurate idea of what children's literature is." We may remember the kids’ books we read, but, the article points out, “Among the markets for middle-grade and young-adult readers, both of which have grown in the wake of the Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket publishing phenomena, editors and readers demand a standard of literary sophistication far above that of 20 years ago.” But if just about every actress and singer is putting out kids’ books these days, how hard can it be? The article confirms what we’ve known all along: “With a few exceptions, they read like exactly what they are: cash cows knocked out quickly and pushed on an unsuspecting market, says Mary Lee Donovan, executive editor at Candlewick Press, an independent children's publishing house.”

A dozen pitfalls
1. My grandchildren loved it. So why won’t they publish it? Children will listen with rapt attention to whatever is read. They particularly enjoy a loved one making them the centre of the world. 2. I’ve written a story about Samuel Squirrel. He’s cuddly and fun. Talking animals are what drives publishers crazy. They are swamped by countless Samuel Squirrels each day. Instead, create proper animal characters. A rabbit or squirrel isn’t cuddly, but they can be cunning, heroic or vicious. Think about the characters who emerge in Charlotte’s Web. 3. I’ve written a story where the villain is a witch who scares children. Witches are a timeless classic after all. “Witches” used to be completely taboo for publishers. These days the Harry Potter witches are accepted. But still steer clear of the traditional “witch” who lives in a spooky house, is ugly and automatically evil. 4. I’ve illustrated the story myself. How do I get it published?

Writing for children "Not All Letters Are Fairy Stories...
But This One Just Might Be!"
Dear Reader, Luckily the DSS fairy came to their rescue with just enough pennies to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. But Joanne wasn't happy. She vowed to make things better. One of the things Joanne really liked to do was make up stories. One day, while sitting on a train, she had an idea for a really good story, and decided to write it down. It took quite a long time, but when she'd finished, she took it to the big city to show to some important men in smart blue suits. And so the story became a book, and lo and behold, people liked it very much. For every one they bought Joanne got her shiny coin. And they bought a lot!

20. Writing For Children By Wendy Robertson
Children are attracted to stories with characters or situations to which they can relate Home/family/school/neighbourhood/inner imagined worlds.
Writing For Children Wendy’s Top Tips: Remember Children are attracted to stories with characters or situations to which they can relate: Home/family/school/neighbourhood/inner imagined worlds. Your reader needs to recognise and identify with the characters.
Characters Keep to one, two, or at most three central characters. (See my story spiral) The rest are extras, just at the very edge of the story Make each of the main characters different to each other, in looks style and attitude
Themes Quest - for treasure/knowledge/wisdom - think The Three Rings Identity - timid person becomes brave/ plain girl becomes beautiful/wimp becomes brave boy – think Cinderella Rescue – saves someone from a bad fate, becomes hero - think Superman Problem solving – saving the family from bankruptcy/betrayal/ destruction - think Jack and The Beanstalk
You might note that many adult novels share these themes! Language Keep the language plain, elegant, and telling. Keep sentences and paragraphs short, active, effective .
