Undiscovered Voices Prep: Creating fiction for young readers with hook, heart and longevity with Catherine Coe, Sara Grant and Benjamin Scott

To encourage more SCBWI-BI* writers to submit fiction for 5 to 8 and 7 to 9 year-olds, Catherine, Sara and Benjamin – writers and editors of hundreds of books for these age ranges – will offer a masterclass in creating engaging stories for young readers. Whether you have a draft already or want to explore this type of fiction, come along for a tutorial crammed full of practical advice and useful tips to hook young readers. For more information on Undiscovered Voices, visit www.undiscoveredvoices.com

Please note that you don't have to be thinking of entering the Undiscovered Voices competition to enrol for this class. It is suitable for anyone who is interested in writing younger fiction.

Catherine Coe, Sara Grant and Benjamin Scott are part of the volunteer committee that organizes Undiscovered Voices. Together they have written, edited or inspired hundreds of books for children and teens, including many well-known series for young readers: Rainbow Magic, Beast Quest, The Blossom Wood series, Star Fighters, Sea Quest and Magic Trix. They are experienced editors as well as writers and all work with budding writers as consultants, mentors, university lecturers and volunteers.
