About This Class

In this class you will learn how to successfully write a children's story. You will learn how to develop a plot, a character, a dialog, and how to create a narrator. You will also learn the different narration types and you will learn other basic fundamentals. You will learn how to write for ages 3-16. By the time you are done with this course you will be able to write a successful short story and sell it on Kindle, Nook, a website/blog, or somewhere else.. I will even teach you some of the tricks of the trade of how to find affordable illustrators. I will also teach other helpful tidbits to help you with your story. I will read and review each persons story at the end of the class for a final assignment and give feedback on what to fix and what I think you could do with the story. I am a professional freelance ghostwriter so this service is included in the class. Take advantage of it wisely. :)
