"The Journey to KidLit Masterclass was extremely helpful. I'd never written a children's picture book before, but Brooke's expert guidance helped me nail my plot and characters. I found the "rule of three" especially useful for mastering my plot. And her lesson on editing helped me polish my language to truly bring out the right voice and tone for my story. I also found the critique session invaluable for getting professional feedback to polish my draft even further. I now have a picture book manuscript I'm truly proud of!"

Journey to Kidlit Writing Masterclass

You've always had the story inside you. All you needed were the skills to bring it to life.

JUST IMAGINE HOW IT WILL FEEL WHEN YOU CAN...

  • Shorten the time it takes to write a children's book instead of letting another year pass by without a finished story.
  • Choose the best idea to write about now instead of having all sorts of new ideas and no clue which to start with first.
  • Understand exactly what it takes to write from a child's perspective instead of wondering if your story voice is connecting with children.
  • Edit your draft yourself, like an editor, instead of waiting for a rejection letter to know if your story's any good.
  • Write the best version of your children's story, publish it, and hold your finished book in your hands this year instead of waiting another year to achieve your dream!

"I would highly recommend this class to others. I loved the length, the information, and the homework to keep everyone accountable. I would recommend to anyone wanting to write children’s books."

- ASHLEY KONEY-

Hi, I'm Brooke Van Sickle!

And I want to help you write your children's book once and for all.

In 2014, I had this idea for a children's book that I KNEW would be the perfect story to share with kids, but I struggled to write it. No matter how hard I tried, I kept receiving rejection letter after rejection letter and hearing that my story wasn't good enough.

Fast forward to now and I'm a 3-time published, award-winning children's book author and senior editor at a publishing house. What changed?

I finally learned what it takes to write a children's story, and write it well.

Now I'm sharing those hard-learned secrets with you in the Journey to Kidlit Writing Masterclass. It's an introductory course on the complete process for writing a good children's book. The simple-to-follow format will alleviate any confusion and help you write your book faster. By the end of the course, you'll feel confident knowing you can write a book kids will love to read!

"Brooke is knowledgeable about writing, editing, and publishing. She knows HOW to teach, (as not everyone can teach). Brooke presents numerous examples for clarity, that I found especially helpful. Above and beyond all this, Brooke is personable and approachable; she welcomes questions in class and out of class. During the latter, Brooke will write back to you--soon! As her student over these past two months, I absolutely know she wants me to feel success as a Picture Book writer."

"Oh my goodness I’m not sure where to start but you’ve lead such an incredible framework for how the business of writing a children’s book works there’s so much tangible information that I didn’t have yet that YOU did. You took all the things you’ve learned over the years and you distilled it down to this few weeks. So valuable, so thank you."

"This is NOT a crash course by all means! You have an hour for the class and then a week to work on the homework on top of your daily writing. I've learned something in each class so far. Each and every class is like a puzzle piece, each puzzle piece is important to complete the puzzle! You will learn something each week!"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH THE JOURNEY TO KIDLIT WRITING MASTERCLASS?

The Masterclass is a self-paced course with all sessions available at once. Each of which includes a note sheet, previously recorded webinar, worksheets to complete for a homework assignment, & a quick, test-your-learning quiz.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

In the Journey to Kidlit Writing Masterclass you'll learn how to:

  • Know if you have a good idea
  • Brainstorm and outline a compelling plot
  • Create characters that readers love
  • Write a children's book from beginning to end
  • Edit your story and add in elements that make it an enjoyable read
  • Prep your story for publishing

HOW'S THIS COURSE DIFFERENT THAN ALL THE REST?

Most writing instructors make you take multiple courses to learn everything you need to know about writing children's books. But not this course! Instead, the Masterclass walks you step-by-step through each part of the children's book writing process, in the order you need to focus on from idea to completed manuscript.

Plus, Brooke's approach is easy-to-understand and implement right away. You'll feel confident knowing you can ask questions at anytime, too!

WHAT'S THE INVESTMENT?

Instead of paying hundreds and hundreds of dollars attending conferences and purchasing writing craft books, the Journey to KidLit Writing Masterclass has everything you need to know about writing a children's book that you feel confident about publishing. With your purchase, you'll receive lifetime access to all the videos, notes, and resources to help you whenever you need.

All for a one-time payment of $97. (Or $147 if you'd also like an additional one-on-one critique.)

HOW DO I KNOW WHETHER THE WRITING MASTERCLASS IS RIGHT FOR ME?

The Masterclass is perfect for anyone who is new to writing. You have an idea for a children's book, but no idea how to get started -- this course will walk you step-by-step through the entire process.

Even if you've been writing your book for a while, you'll benefit from the course! Especially if you're feeling frazzled or overwhelmed by all your ideas yet still not able to finish your manuscript.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME TO COMMIT?

That's okay! The Writing Masterclass is self-paced, meaning it can adjust to your schedule. Plus, with your lifetime access to the entire course content, you're able to watch and rewatch the trainings again and again as you improve as a writer.

HOW DOES THE MASTERCLASS WORK?

You'll receive access to sign-up to the course platform, which will take you to the full Masterclass. From there, the course will step you through each intro to download your Writing Master worksheet and view a short video about what to expect.

After each intro, you'll move into the webinar portion for each session. When you've finished viewing the webinar, you'll have a homework assignment to work on, as well as, a quick 3-question quiz to test what you just learned.

Plus, you will be able to log-in and out of the platform as many times as you need! The course is built with lifetime access.

CAN I HAVE MY STORY CRITIQUED?

YES! If you sign-up for the Writing Masterclass Option #2, you'll receive either a full picture book manuscript or the first 10-pages of your novel critique. Plus, you'll schedule a live one-on-one Zoom call to go through Brooke's notes together.
