What we do

We offer a range of programmes and courses for children’s writers, to help you develop your craft and industry knowledge at affordable prices.


Our summer programme is a voluntary, and free to apply to, 4 month mentoring period with an agented/published children’s writer, which culminates in an agent showcase.


Led by Maz Evans (MG) and Lauren James (YA), these intense courses are designed for competent writers to take their work to the next level.

With course notes, feedback on up to 30k of your work, and a 1-2-1 tutorial with the course leader.


Our novel award is for all unpublished and unagented writers of all childrens fiction, from PB to YA.

£10 Entry and up to 30 FREE entries for low-income writers.


From our 6 week PB course to our 6 week MG/YA course and our 5 week Preparing for Submission course, we have all the children’s writing courses you need.

With visiting agents, weekly workshops and tutor feedback on all tasks.


WOW-CON is an all-online writing conference for children’s writers.

With speakers, workshops, agent 1-2-1s and our WOW-PITCH contest, it’s well worth the £10 ticket!


We are proud to announce that in 2020, we will be brining writing weekends to you!

With workshops at nearly 40 locations across the UK/IRE, you’re bound to find one local.

With 4 workshops, 10 hours of free writing time and an industry expert 1-2-1 at a quality venue. We also offer payment plans for those who need to spread the cost.


Our paid for mentoring is perfect for those who need a little help as they draft, or who need extra developmental help on a completed manuscript.

We have a range of mentors involved and with our regular industry expert chats and blog posts, anyone can join our community.
