Children’s Literary Agents Roundup: How to Write for Young Audiences

Join us for our final topic chat about writing for Children & YA Readers and mark your Calendar for Sunday’s Guest Chat.
Four agents who represent children’s literature, took time out of their busy day to share their insight and wisdom on platform, writing picture books, and writing for young audiences. If you want a better understand of what these agents are seeking in their submissions inbox and in their clients—and thus developing a better understanding of how to approach them and find representation—be sure to pick up a copy of Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market 2018 for the full roundup!
We have Guests on Sunday.

We receive about a thousand unsolicited children’s manuscripts every month, like the ones in the mail bins below. Every one of them is read by a children’s editor here, and I’m here to offer you some tips on how to make your manuscript stand out from the pack.

Before you submit your children’s project to Chronicle Books, I’d encourage you to immerse yourself in the industry, hone your craft, and do your research.

Our Wednesday Mini Topic – 6 Keys to Write a YA Novel

6 Keys to Write a YA Novel That Connects With Teen Readers

Writing a novel that appeals to a younger audience takes a certain amount of finesse—especially if you are no longer in that age bracket! It is not easy to venture into the minds of young adults and, essentially, “relive” your own past.

At Inkitt, I am regularly in touch with published authors who are eager to share their experience and provide support to emerging writers. Let’s have a look at six essential tips they have shared with us when it comes to writing YA novels.

The emotional drive of YA fiction is what truly separates it from other stories, and it is clear why so many people identify with it. It’s the ability of these texts to inherently understand and explore the emotions of humans that makes them such an enjoyable journey.

Keep your characters complex, your emotions high and your conflict enticing, and you’ll be well on your way to a great piece of YA fiction.

Like all forms, short stories have their own unique rules. However, the rules for writing short stories are not difficult to master.

We will talk about the big three during the first hour of chat.
