Much like writing for different genres, writing for different age ranges comes with unique expectations—and challenges!

Beth is a freelance journalist and prolific, middle grade fiction author of a dozen middle grade novels, including the Cybils’-nominated Caleb and Kit, the ILA award-winning A Blind Guide to Stinkville, and the “Pack of Dorks” series.

During our discussion, she will share her tips on writing books for the middle grade audience and  considerations and concerns middle grade authors must keep in mind to stand out in today’s competitive publishing market.

Spend an hour with us while we discuss these absolutely essential considerations during my FREE virtual discussion:
