UK Childrens Books
For New Writers
If you want to write for children, you don't just need to be able to create plots and write well. You also need to understand how the publishing business works. To help you, we've created a FAQ for new writers page on our main Word Pool site. You'll also find reviews of helpful books on the Word Pool bookshelf, plus details of the two UK market guides - The Writer's Handbook and The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook.
These days, self-publishing is a viable alternative to taking the traditional route of submitting to agents and publishers. You'll find plenty of information to help you write, self-publish and market your books on our sister site - helpwithpublishing.com.
Please do not send us your manuscript. We are not publishers and cannot help you find one. We also don't have time to give you personal feedback on your work. If you need this, ask at your local library for details of any creative writing classes or writers' groups in your area. They offer feedback and the company of people who share your desire to write.
Good luck and happy writing
