Writing Young Fiction with SCBWI NZ

Swapna HaddowHalfway Round the World with the Haddows, Scrapbook

Thank you so much to Team SCBWI NZ for inviting me to talk about creating young fiction.

I loved hearing everyone’s under-pressure pitches and hope you are all off to work on your young fiction series right away.

I thought I would just highlight my key points about young fiction here:

•Remember to invest in your characters and create characters who can last an entire series

•Don’t talk down to your reader

•Action and dialogue keep the story moving

Have fun writing!
