Where do captivating ideas for children’s books really come from? How do you make a picture book text work? What does it truly take to write a middle-grade novel that lingers and lasts?

Join award-winning writer Lisa Shanahan for an engaging and interactive six-week course for early and emerging writers. Learn the art and craft of writing for children, from picture books to junior novels to middle-grade fiction.

Through practical exercises, discussion and reflection, students will consider fresh ways of harvesting original ideas from memory and observation, as well as discovering the power and significance of poetic and playful line-by-line writing. Students will review the importance of editing and redrafting, when and where to deploy a critical eye, and how to process feedback favourably.

An overview of the children’s book publishing industry will also be given, including issues regarding submission, layout of manuscripts, finding publishers and agents, and the practical daily business of being a writer.

Writing for the Primary School Education Market

with Louise Park

 Saturday 1st December 2018 - 10am-4pm 

When: Saturday 1 December 2018, 10am-4pm

Full Price: $195

Louise Park

Many well-known children’s authors began their careers writing for the education market and continue to do so alongside successful trade careers. Education publishing offers wonderful diversity and scope; it is also one of the best training grounds for emerging writers. But what exactly is it?

Education writers are paid to create resources that support the Australian primary school curriculum. If you think this sounds limiting, think again! An education writer can find herself knee-deep in a historical fiction novel one moment and a biography of a famous inventor the next. It is engaging, varied and exacting all at once. Education writing is crafted to tightly written briefs and is heavily affected by editorial and design concerns, offering the perfect training environment for career writers. Writing for the education market sets writers up to spread their wings.

Find out how to get started in this full-day introduction to the field. You’ll learn about education briefs and guidelines, how to accommodate editorial considerations, and the basics of education publishing contracts. You’ll find out what makes a winning manuscript, and you’ll learn skills easily transferable to trade publishing.

The Australian Children's Laureate is an award presented every two years to one of Australia's pre-eminent children's authors/illustrators to celebrate their contribution to Australian literature. Our vision is to enrich children's lives through the power of story and develop a culture of reading in Australia.

The Laureate's role is to engage with kids, educators, the public and the media on the importance of reading, as well as advocating for and supporting educators, particularly teacher-librarians. During their appointment the Laureate acts as a national and international ambassador for reading.

Alison Lester and Boori Monty Pryor, the inaugural Laureates' (2012-13) travelled all around Australia inspiring many kids to read and tell their stories.

Jackie French, as our second Children's Laureate (2014-15), has fully embraced her role inspiring many children and families while also supporting educators of literacy.

Give now to our "I'm a Supporter" campaign to secure the future of the Australian Laureate Award so we can build on the momentum and impact of this essential advocacy role for children's literature and literacy. Thank you!

The Laureate Award it administered by the Australian Children's Literature Alliance (ACLA), a national not-for-profit, independent organization dedicated to developing a culture of reading in Australia. We believe that reading changes lives!

Miniature Literary Festivals for Miniature People...

KinderFests are 2 hour miniature literary festivals for very young children. These mini-festivals are perfect for daycare centres, preschools, kindergartens, Pre-Prep and Prep.

We have access to a wide range of picture book creators, both authors and illustrators, who are also experienced presenters and performers. Three guest picture book creators read their stories, sing songs, have question time and run a simple craft or drawing activity.

Sessions can be held with one large group or split into three smaller groups and run on a simultaneous rotating basis. The Story Time and Craft sessions are followed by Book Sales and Signings so children can take home their very own, first-ever personally signed book.

KinderFests are perfect for Open Days, Special Friends and Grandparents Days, Children's Week, Numeracy & Literacy Week, Library Week, Book Week or simply to educate children about the importance of books and reading.​

We organise everything so you only have one point of contact. It's very easy!

However, while I was at the site I had a wander around, and soon discovered that it was even better than a goat's site - no kidding! This is a brilliant haven for writers, new and not so new; a place to showcase their work and to learn from others.' Well done, Georgie. You've done a fantastic job. - www.enterprisingwords.com.au
