About this Webinar:

Creators of nonfiction for kids must possess a thorough understanding of the role quality research plays in the work. The writer’s job is to craft an engaging and enlightening book, relying on the most credible source material available with the knowledge that a robust editorial process will put his or her results to the test.

This webinar will explore best practices for researching children’s nonfiction, covering the basics of:

     1. Getting familiar with today’s children’s-nonfiction landscape.

     2. Choosing a topic

     3. Setting up a research plan

     4. Vetting source material

     5. Determining the depth and breadth of information to include

     6. Preparing for editorial scrutiny
