Calling Kid Writers – Learn to Research!
Join author Laura Perdew as she explains some of her research and writing methods in a series of videos for kids!
Research can be overwhelming for new writers! How do you keep track of all the facts and figures you come across when learning about something, never mind keeping a list of sources to be checked and rechecked later in the process. And, once you’ve gathered plenty of research material, how do you shape that giant pile into a piece of writing that makes sense and is interesting to readers?
Laura Perdew, author of many fiction and nonfiction books for kids, shares some key tips she uses when writing her books. Her four videos cover the topics of word choice, organization, research, and choices.
You can find the whole series on the Nomad Press YouTube channel. Watch her video below on research!
