Pitch Wars Webinars Presents…
The Four T’s of Writing Classic Middle Grade
Writing Middle Grade literature is a privilege and a responsibility. It can also be extremely intimidating to try and follow in the steps of Kate DiCamillo or Katherine Applegate. But if you think you want to make the jump to writing for this age group, or aren’t sure whether you’re writing MG or YA, or maybe just want to be inspired again before you begin working on your next MG novel, then this class is for you. We will help you understand the four fundamental elements of great MG literature. Truth, Tenderness, Transformation, and Timelessness.
Come prepared to understand how MG literature works with developmental milestones, how to address tough topics for this age group, and secrets to writing the kind of book that begs to be reread long after childhood. The lecture portion of this class will last about 50 minutes, with 10-20 minutes of Q&A afterwards.
