You Can be a Writer by Teena Raffa-Mulligan

Who can be a writer? You can! – #readilearn

I always enjoyed writing with children — the entire process. We saw story potential everywhere and found inspiration in the things they said or did as well as in everyday occurrences and special events. It was great to wonder and consider the what ifs as we brainstormed and developed ideas and let our excitement pour out in words on the paper. Sharing our original stories with an appreciative audience gave purpose to the process and added to the enjoyment.

    This was a lovely interview. I am trying to get my 6-year old daughter to read at least one book every day. The Railway Children and The Secret Garden are her favorites too, along with The Story of Heidi. In fact, I tell her stories from my imagination. If she likes it, I draft it down and send it to a journal for consideration:)

      I’m pleased you enjoyed the interview. Thank you. Telling stories to children is a great way of developing them for publication. I wish you success with journal submissions.

      My pleasure, Teena. It’s so refreshing to find a book about writing for children that shows them it can be fun and they can be successful at it. I like that they can run with their own ideas rather than try to write to another’s expectations.
