Writing Humor For Kids Banner

What is it?

A virtual discussion via Zoom featuring four successful middle-grade authors sharing wisdom and wisecracks about writing funnies for kids.

Why we think it’s hot?

Anyone who can make kids laugh or smile is a hero. This event has four of them in one place.

Full details

Where do authors find inspiration for funny situations and characters? How do they test jokes to make sure they’re landing with kids? And what are the funniest books they read growing up?

Join Linden Tree Books for a special panel with four fantastic middle-grade authors as they discuss how to write humor for kids. The panelists are:

  • Cliff Burke (An Occasionally Happy Family)
  • Lisa Moore Ramée (A Good Kind of Trouble, Something to Say)
  • Mae Respicio (How to Win a Slime War)
  • Sam Subity (The Last Shadow Warrior)

Who should attend?

This panel will be perfect for middle-grade readers who love funny books, as well as adults interested in writing for kids.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
