5. Institute of Children's Lit

The people who started the Institute of Children’s Literature and Institute for Writers (formerly Long Ridge Writers Group) in 1969 and 1989, respectively, did so because they wanted to help people learn to write and get published. Our methods and courses work, otherwise we wouldn’t still be in business over 50 years later.

I started off by taking courses at the Institute of Children’s Literature and enjoyed the courses very much. I got published almost immediately and just as I was finishing the course, I sold my first story. From that point on I took a few more courses with them [and now have published] over 100 books with over 11 million copies sold. My books have been on many bestseller lists including the New York Times, USA today, Publishers Weekly, and more.

––Wanda E. Brunstetter

Our courses, and the way we teach them are unique. Every student receives one-on-one guidance for each assignment. You find out how to write from the extensive course materials that come with every course, and with help from your instructor critiques.
