Product description

Review

"Hopeful authors exploring 'the way to write for children' could ask for no finer guide than Joan Aiken."--Lloyd Alexander, Newbery Award winner "Joan Aiken has a very clear and unique voice which she brings to the Matter of Children's Books. Any writer who wants to learn the business--of writing--can learn much here."--Jane Yolen, Caldecott Medal and Skylark winner ""The Way to Write for Children" is unquestionably bound to become the definitive practical guide for anyone wanting to enter a genre that looks so easy and turns out to be such a mine field for the unwary. But what I cherish in the book is Joan Aiken's passion . . . Whether or not you hope to write for children, this is a book for the permanent shelf of every thoughtful writer."--Peter S. Beagle, author of "The Last Unicorn "and "The Innkeeper's Song " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
