Recently Theo, a Grade 3 student, sat down for a discussion with Chris, a Grade 7 student. Chris is the author of The Secret Warrior, which he published at the beginning of this school year. Theo is also interested in writing his own novel, and had some questions for Chris about the writing process as well as the publishing bit.
You, too, might be interested in writing a book. Perhaps you’d like to check out Chris’ book from our library [FIC PAN], or Gordon Korman’s This Can’t Be Happening at MacDonald Hall [FIC KOR], which he wrote when he was 12 years old as part of a special school assignment. In addition, Mr. Weber found this cool program that helps guide kids through the process of writing a book: The Junior Secret Noveling Club. It was developed by educator Lydia Netzer, and it’s really cool. Click below to get linked to the activities.
