About the Children’s Writers’ Coaching Club:
The CWCC teleclasses cover everything from how to write picture books to how to find an agent to sell your middle grade novel. And, although each of these teleclasses is a live event, where you can ask questions and interact with other members of the class and the instructor – you don’t have to attend the live calls. As a club member, the day after each teleclass you receive a link to the recording, so you can download it and listen to the class whenever you like.
A monthly lesson and writing assignment, designed to become a finished project ready for submission to a publisher, usually by the end of the month, although some projects take longer. You aren’t required to complete the monthly assignment in order to be a member of the club. It’s up to you. But if you do complete the assignment, you can turn it in and have it professionally reviewed.
Manuscript critiques are a BIG feature of membership in our club. Members can submit a manuscript (up to 1,000 words) for professional critique every week. These critiques are audio critiques, so you can listen to an experienced, published children’s author give you tips and suggestions for making your manuscripts more marketable.
Club members also have the opportunity to network daily via an online discussion list with other members of the CWCC, as well as the instructors.
