An Exclusive Children's Book Insider Event:

Children’s Nonfiction is booming - and now's the perfect time to become part of this exciting market.

It's a fact: children's nonfiction offers far more opportunities than fiction for getting published.

With increasing interest in nonfiction picture and gift books, graphic and YA nonfiction, Common Core and other initiatives, there are great opportunities for writers to find work and place projects in this fast-growing genre.

And children’s nonfiction can be every bit as creative, fun, and rewarding as fiction.

Now, in one powerful teaching session, Lionel Bender - author of more than 70 children's nonfiction books - will show you how to break into this expanding market... and succeed!

Lionel will provide clear, actionable direction that will help you get a running start on your thrilling journey to becoming a published children's nonfiction author.
