The Magic Words: Writing Great Books for Children and Young Adults

Great children's and young adult novels offer their readers both wonderful outward adventures and stirring inward journeys. In The Magic Words, Cheryl B. Klein draws on fifteen years of experience as an editor to guide writers on an enjoyable and practical-minded voyage of their own. She provides a complete overview of the writing, editing, and publication processes, from developing a salable premise for a novel to querying your dream agent. She also explains the differences in content and approach for middle-grade vs. young adult novels, and she discusses vital contemporary topics in the field like self-publishing, world-building, and creating diverse characters. The book delves deep into the major elements of fiction-intention, character, plot, and style-while its original exercises, thought-provoking questions, and solid rules of thumb help writers apply its insights to their individual creative work. With its generous tone and useful tools for story analysis and revision, The Magic Words will be an essential handbook for writers of children's and young adult fiction.
