Writing for Children: Adventurous Middle Grade Fiction

October 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST


Have you ever dreamed about writing a children’s book? Perhaps you don’t know where to start or maybe you’ve written one but don’t know what to do next. Whether you’ve been writing for years or just thinking about it, we have the perfect event to inspire you to turn your dream into reality.

With a wealth of experience, success and accolades between them, we’re delighted that children’s authors Emma Read, Sophie Kirtley and Anna Hoghton will be offering advice and sharing tips along with their own road to publication in a jam-packed hour hosted by Storytale Director and author Kate Frost live on Facebook.

The event is free and there will be the opportunity to ask Emma, Sophie and Anna questions throughout.

  • Emma Read is the author of young middle grade fiction Milton the Mighty and Milton the Megastar published by Chicken House.
  • Sophie Kirtley is the author of The Wild Way Home and The Way to Impossible Island, adventure stories for 9-12 year olds both published by Bloomsbury.
  • Anna Hoghton is the author of The Mask of Aribella, a magical middle grade adventure set in Venice published in 2020 by Chicken House Books.
