Notes on Writing for Children

“To stand out, an author must find his or her own voice and style and use them to express concerns that are passionately felt and imagined. Good writing for children has the same qualities as good writing for any age group: What stands out is authority, the confidence to be what it is. It tells the reader that the journey will be worthwhile.”  Coppard, Yvonne, and Newbery, Linda. “Child’s Play.” The Writer March 2014: 26. Print.
