For You Writers Out There

Learning the business of writing can be overwhelming. I've found a wonderful site that offers help with writing for children, freelance writing and building a business out of writing. The creator of this site is Suzanne Lieurance.

Suzanne is a fulltime children’s author, freelance writer, and The Working Writer’s Coach. She teaches children’s writing for the Institute of Children’s Literature based in West Redding, Connecticut, and is the founder and director of the National Writing for Children Center. Lieurance is the author of 20 published books and has written articles for a variety of magazines, newsletters, and ezines like Family-Fun, Kansas City Weddings, Instructor Magazine, New Moon for Girls, Children’s Writer, and many others. She hosts a talk show about children’s books, called Book Bites for Kids, every weekday afternoon on Lieurance offers a variety of coaching programs via private phone calls, teleclasses, listserv, and private email for writers who want to turn their love of writing (for children and/or adults)into a part-time or full-time career.

I am a member of Suzanne's Children's Writers Coaching Club. For a miniscule amount per month as a member you get monthly assignments geared to get your work published and critiques of those assignments, teleclasses explaining the how to write for children, and monthly critiques of your works in progress. This club also offers information on the business of writing such as making yourself visible through online ezines and blogs.

Suzanne has a knack for motivating and encouraging her members. I highly recommend this site and club.

A couple of Suzanne's other clubs/groups are Build Your Business Write, Writers on Call, and Working Writers Coach.

Make your day and check it out at: National Writing for Children Center

See you in blog world,

Hi, Karen,

Thanks for helping get the word out about the Children's Writers' Coaching Club. It really is a labor of love for me since I like helping other writers succeed almost as much as I love writing itself.

Visit the NWFCC today to see some photos and info. from another club member in Australia.

Have a great day! Write like the wind!
