PWRI 4560 (4 credits)

Writing Books for Children

This course concentrates on the craft of writing three distinct categories of children’s fiction: the picture book, the early/easy/transitional reader and novels for older readers (chapter book, middle grade and young adult novel). Within each category, students have a unique opportunity to explore storytelling for a specific young audience whose members vary in age, reading interest and reading ability. Note that this course covers narrative fiction only; nonfiction, though a valuable genre of children’s literature, is beyond the scope of this course. Prerequisite: PWRI 4540 Children's Literature.
