CWILL BC Tip of the Week

Each week, a CWILL BC member offers a tip about writing or illustrating, the creative process, or getting published.

This week’s tip comes from Fiona Bayrock, the author of Bubble Homes and Fish Farts. On her website, Fiona offers lots of advice for non-fiction writers.

Fiona’s tip:
Tap into your Ew!, Phew!, and Cool! – Think like a kid. 
Lead with the gross, icky, unusual, weird, hilarious, or very cool aspects of your topic. Sure, a giraffe has a long tongue, but tell kids it’s long enough for the giraffe to clean its ears with it (Ew, gross!), and you’ve hooked them into reading more.
