Children's writing courses
There are a variety of formats for courses in children's writing. There are children's writing courses available on the Internet, correspondence courses, MFA programs, and local children's writing classes.
Internet courses covering children's writing are available at an affordable cost. Gotham Writer's Workshop is a well respected company that offers writing courses on almost all genres and levels. They have online Internet courses available at www.writingclasses.com. It is very helpful. Participants complete assignments and upload them to a virtual classroom. They are also responsible for critiquing other student's work.
Internet classes are great to get started, but actually meeting with a class in person is much more effective. In New York City there is the Gotham Writer's Workshop. It is great fun and there is a lot to learn there about writing. Plus, it is great to talk with other people.
Another place to look for other writing classes is at local colleges and universities.
