    Children's fiction : targeting age/readership levels

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by inkyliddlefingers, Sep 12, 2013.

    Hello all,

    Have just found this amazing website that will calculated the estimated reading age/level of your work. It even gives you the readability formula calculations for all the major grade indexing systems including Gunning-Fog, Flesch-Kincaid and so on, so that you can compare your scores.

    http://www.readability-score.com/

    I've used it loads lately, and find it really useful.
