BLOG BREAK Fiction and Fantasy

Nick Cross presents his fortnightly selection of must-read SCBWI-BI member blogs.

How do you know when you've finished an edit and can finally press the Send button? Tracy Darnton shares the stages of her editing process.

Clare Helen Welsh is excited about narrative non-fiction picture books in her post for Picture Book Den. And, after reading it, hopefully you will be too!

More non-fiction advice now, this time from Claire Watts. Claire has some great tips on how to get started writing non-fiction for children.

And even more advice, this time a post about the nuts and bolts of creating a fantasy world from Ann Brady. So much to think about, and she doesn't even mention drawing a map!

Finally, here's Sarah Broadley interviewing SCBWI-BI author Lindsay Littleson about her latest middle grade adventure, Secrets Of The Last Merfolk.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
