Writing Across Age Groups from Board Books to Chapter Books

with Vicky Fang

What kind of book are you writing anyway?

Sometimes, a story idea you have is better suited for a different category. A picture book idea might be better suited as a chapter book, or an early reader, or a board book. But how do you know? And how do you tackle a new category? Writing across more categories means more opportunities to create and sell stories.

Author (and sometimes illustrator) Vicky Fang talks about how to expand your storytelling skills to different categories, including board books, picture books, early readers, graphic novels, and chapter books. She’ll share her process for diving into a new category, as well as basic information to get familiar with each one. She’ll also provide insights into her overall approach to crafting and pitching.

"Thank you, Vicky. Time to try and dip my toes in the lake of other genres."

- Sharon Coffey
