WRITING FOR CHILDREN- TITLES:
Keep your titles short and snappy.
I have learned this one the hard way! People seem to have great difficulty remembering my longer titles, but no problem remembering the shorter ones. A good general rule is to keep your titles from one to three words, no more than five.
Catchy sounds- In creating your titles, try playing with poetic devises like alliteration and rhyme. Of my own book titles, I think my favorite is MONSTER MANNERS because the alliteration makes it fun to say. Use verbs- Another way to make a title lively is to use an active verb in it. I did that with FOLLOW ME! Reflect the theme - a good title, however short and catchy, gives us a hint of what the story is about. Hook your reader - The title is your first chance to grab the attention of a reader- or of an editor. Has your title been used?

Course Overview
Download Course Sheet (Adobe PDF Format) All Course Documents The module offers students a developmental and directed learning pathway, within a context of considerable individual choice and freedom. Each unit is inter-related. The teaching materials offer background theoretical and historical information, and also contain extracts from contemporary books for children, accompanied by essays of analysis and process-description of the work. The course book contains clear instruction and outline of expectation; exercises and assignments to help students to develop their own creative style and voice, and instructions on keeping a ‘learning journal’ for reflection and critical appraisal.
The OCA website and blog contain interviews with writers, publishers and other key practitioners and professionals within the field, in which they reflect on their own practice and experience.
Students have considerable flexibility as to the style and content of their assignments. There is no pre-set order for the units – which is intended as a flexible resource enabling tutor and student to explore aspects of the creative process in the order which seems most appropriate to the individual. The learning experience is two-fold: the course book offering a solid framework and the tutor/student one-to-one relationship offering structure and direction.
