Writing Plays for Kids

If you write for children, don't limit yourself to traditional fiction. Use your story-telling skills to create plays kids will love. For suggestions about how to do that, see my article "6 Tips on Writing Plays for Kids" on the Guide to Literary Agents Blog. For information about potential markets for your plays, check out the "Play Markets" tab on my website. Good luck, playwrights!

Hi D.J. I often suggest that teachers and libraries turn one of my books into a play. My second book has 10 characters and is so much fun to read. I would love to see it "performed" by kids.

I actually got into writing plays when I observed how kids' stories are often carried a lot by the dialogue. I converted a few stories into plays and then moved on to writing plays "from scratch." You might be able to create a script for your book!
