Children’s Book Author
Lori Degman
 

If you are interested in writing for children, here are some things you can do:


~ Just start writing!  Don't worry about spelling and grammar when you write your first draft.  

    Get your story down on paper (or on the computer) - you'll have plenty of time later to go

    back and revise and revise and revise!


~ Join the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators - SCBWI.  They have a great 

    website and very helpful conferences and meetings.  I've learned so much about writing from 

    this group.


~ Find a critique group to join - it's invaluable!  I'm a member of an online group but I know a lot

    of people who meet in person.  You can find more information about this on the SCBWI website.


~ Check out KID LIT 411 - it’s a one-stop-shop for everything kid lit!
