Is there any 'cut-off' point for entries into the childrens fiction section here, re age range? I've got a few ideas for the older age group range (mainly because that's the age my own children are) i.e things that might appeal to Harry Potter readers. However, I've noticed a lot of the entries seem to be aimed below this level, and some things I'd consider older childrens' fiction have been found in the non-childrens areas (sci-fi etc) I guess it's a bit of a grey area, yes? One small consideration for the mods: Perhaps it would be a good idea if the childrens' section were given a forum of its own, rather than being put in the fiction area. Kids' libraries have books of all kinds - poetry, non-fiction subjects etc - and I know for a fact that many children actually prefer poetry and 'serious' subjects to story books. At the moment, writers for children are constricted to just one area here. For example, I've drafted a couple of short history essays set at the level my nine year old would enjoy (on purpose, she's just come back from a 'Roman Holiday' and thinks she's still Queen Boudicca!) but I'm loathe to submit them to the non-fiction section, because this is aimed at adults and I'd need to put a lengthy explanation as to why my writing has suddenly become so childish. Ditto any poetry - I write a lot of kids' poems. I'd be interested on other writers' views. Sorry this isn't in the 'suggestions box' - feel free to move it if you want! PS This looks like a good one for a poll, but I wasn't sure how to do this. Perhaps the mods could set one up for me? Thanks.
