“Writing for Children”

Presented by Susie Wilde

Susie Wilde

Susie Wilde, children’s book columnist for The News & Observer in Raleigh, reads thousands of books a year. These have helped guide her teaching those who write children's books. So what makes the books she reads worthy of review? Why do books fail? Workshop participants are invited to join her in examining picture books and determining what makes good children’s book writing succeed. Participants are encouraged to share their favorites and the books they've discovered that don't work for them. Together registrants will compose a list of recommendations to consider when writing children's books.

Susie is passionate about igniting readers and writers. She’s been a member of NCWN for more than five years and a writer for much longer. She currently writes reviews for The News & Observer in Raleigh and AudioFile Magazine and writes with children. She teaches adults how to write children’s books and works on her memoir when she can find the time. Find out more on her website: www.ignitingwriting.com.
