A self-paced, home-study course in writing Chapter Books and Middle Grade novels for ‘tween and pre-teen readers.
The Just Write courses are fun, focused and comprehensive. No fluff, no busywork – just extraordinary instruction and insight from a professional author, editor and coach who is totally plugged in to the contemporary children’s book scene and dedicated to the craft of writing for young people.
Of course, there are a lot of writing courses out there… some of them very worthy. But many are prohibitively expensive, others are outdated or feature less-than-impressive content, and some are way too complicated.
Emma’s Just Write Children’s Books courses are simple, authoritative and affordable.
