Pitch Wars Webinars: The Four T’s of Writing Classic Middle Grade

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.

About Pitch Wars Webinars…

The Pitch Wars webinar series was developed to help writers at every stage of their careers. Mentors and industry experts will host webinars focused on pitching, publishing, developing craft, and more.

Pitch Wars is a contest where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each, read their entire manuscript, and offer suggestions to shine it up for agents. The mentors work with their mentees for two months before an agent round. Learn more.

We're thrilled at the different ways those in our Pitch Wars community are giving back—and we encourage them to do so. However, please keep in mind that Pitch Wars is not affiliated with any of these various contests, promotions, etc., including those of our mentors and mentees. Promoting any such opportunities via our social media channels doesn't imply endorsement or affiliation. We encourage you to do your research before participating.
