Writing Children's Short Stories

How to write short stories for children. A one-hour audio presentation.

Much of this course is geared toward writing stories for Guideposts for Kids which is no longer in circulation. However there are some ideas that are still relevant to anyone writing for kids. We have classified this lecture as a "Classic" because Lurlene is a successful bestselling author with millions of books in print. She knows what she is talking about!

Because of the age of the material the lecture has been discounted accordingly.

Originally recorded in the late-90s at an American Christian Writers conference. If you want to know more about the conferences and services of ACW visit www.acwriters.com.
