Writing for a Middle Grade Audience with Danielle Binks

Join literary agent and middle-grade author Danielle Binks in this unique online writing course.

Middle Grade (books for those aged 8-12) is one of the fastest-growing and most in-demand readerships in Australia. It is also one of the trickiest age categories to write for, demanding a crucial understanding of language and audience. Through a series of writing exercises and industry insights from your tutor, this workshop will teach you all you need to know about writing for a middle-grade audience.

You will learn:

  • What makes a Middle Grade book, and how is it different from Young Adult literature
  • How to communicate big ideas to a Middle Grade audience
  • How to write compelling characters and plots to keep young readers turning the page
  • How to use language in an age-appropriate way
  • Industry insights into the Middle Grade readership, and how to pitch your manuscript for publication

The course is designed to take you 6-8 hours to complete, but can be accomplished in short stages, or at your convenience.
