About the Book
Girl and Duck is an online creative writing school. The brainchild of acclaimed children’s author, Jen Storer, Girl and Duck has quickly gained popularity among aspiring and emerging creators.
In 2016, Jen taught her first Girl and Duck real life class: Writing Books for Children. While preparing the class notes, Jen created a small handmade book, a gift for each of her students. The book contained ten tips for aspiring children’s authors. She hoped the book would spark conversations, get students to think more deeply about children’s literature and provide inspiration. Over the following year, Jen expanded on those original tips and set about writing this e-book.
Breezy, quirky and conversational, See Me Jump is a creative writing book designed to delight your childlike sensibilities and nurture your inner artist. It is also wise and insightful and draws on Jen’s long and varied career both as a children’s writer and as an editor of children’s books.
Jen Storer is the author of many books for children including the best selling series, Truly Tan, and the critically acclaimed, Tensy Farlow and the Home for Mislaid Children.
