Opie says: I did a
"writing for children" course 9
years ago - Now I have over 70
published children's books.
Three of my

By learning from an expert!
wasn't just a case of studying the course notes.
No, the most important thing was the feedback
I received from my tutor, an experienced children's
author. I submitted stories or chapters for homework and
received great advice on how I could improve them and my

matter of weeks.
