Where does your manuscript fit in?

Fitting in. That's a concern all of us face throughout our lives. From finding a place to sit in the cafeteria for lunch, in an office or holiday party.

As writers of children's literature, finding your place might be tricky. Recently, I have critiqued fellow writers who are unsure where their story fits in. Questions range from - Does my manuscript fall into young adult instead of middle grade due to violence? Does the sentence structure read like a middle grade or chapter book? Is there too much dialogue in my manuscript to consider it a picture book?

Picture Books
Beginning Readers
Chapter Books
Middle Grade Novels
