Linda Writes for Kids

Welcome! If you’re a writer, then we share a passion for expressing those thoughts that rumble around in our heads until we put them on paper. If your passion is writing for children, then you’ve come to the right place. I’m a children’s author who has been in the traditional kidlit publishing business for over 15 years. I’ve just started a YouTube channel to help share the things I’ve learned, and continue to learn, along my publishing path in order to help more writers out there. I’ll update here when I post new videos. I hope you’ll find them helpful, and hope that you’ll reach out to join my writing community!
