Writing Nonfiction and Children's Literature: Do you know of any good literature ABOUT these subjects?
January 9, 2007 11:11 AM Subscribe
I am looking for well regarded books/scholarly papers about writing. Most specifically in the areas of Nonfiction (the essay style of article writing) and Children's Fiction (for a young adult audience).
Any tips? Go as far and broad as you can. I'll be off to the British library tomorrow, so the sky is the limit.

I am currently undertaking a Masters Degree in Creative and Professional Writing.
Having written an essay on 'The Problem of Dogma and the Power of Myth', I would now like to assess my article/essay style against writing theory.
As part of my course, I have also written an excerpt from a Young Adult Novel, and would dearly like to read up on some of the literature surrounding the genre.
Thanks in advance...
