Here you will find links to my many workshop handouts, my published magazine articles, and other notes for adults who want to write for children. Please keep my copyright (or the magazine’s) on all pages that you download.

At the bottom is a link to a page of even more resources for folks who care about children, writing for children and children’s books.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Shutta welcomes your comments or questions. Please note that she--like you--must purchase copies of her books and therefore does not donate copies to schools or organizations she is not personally familiar with. However, she does maintain a list of great organizations that do provide free books. You can find this list under the "Teachers" tab above: "Sites Where You Can Win Free Books."
