Where does your manuscript fit in?
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?
You Can Write Children's Books by Tracey E. Dils clearly describes each category.
Middle Grade Novels
Young Adult Novels
