Let us take the worry out of – Do I need an online presence? Membership provides you with an online platform. It’s here readers and potential publishers can view your work.
Workshop your ideas and gain valuable feedback from your peers through our online Critique Group. Many of our members have gone on to be published. YOU could be next!
Our Manuscript Assessment and Author Personal Training services can upskill you, so you can produce work that is truly worthy of presenting for publication, with writing that proves you have what it takes. Something that genuinely puts YOU ahead of the pack.
To be a part of the Creative Kids Tales family, Membership packages start from only $80 per year.
We make no claim on your submissions. You remain the sole owner of your work. We take the hassle out of creating your own website. If you already have a website that’s fine too, we will include a link to it with your bio. Just go to the How it Works page under the About tab to find out how CKT can work for YOU.
