Welcome to the February 2019 edition of CKT
Happy belated New Year!
Here we are off and running and its already February! It’s true what they say the older you get, the faster time goes. I always plan on easing into a new year but it never quite turns out that way.
It’s been a rocky few months for my family with our daughter in and out of surgery. She’s getting there but still not all the way. Thanks for the many messages and calls.
Everything is coming together for the Creative Kids Tales Writers’ Festival on 6 April at Gymea Tradies. We have a fantastic line-up of children’s writing industry royalty that will be speaking. With tickets at only $95 each, they are a steal considering the quality of talent on offer during the day. If you’ve been thinking about attending, don’t leave it until it’s too late. INVEST now and snap up a ticket to reap the rewards from the knowledge on show.
There are only 11 spots left. From 9.00am on 2 February, existing ticket holders will be able to purchase additional manuscript assessments. I predict all assessments will be snapped up so get in quick. Remember you must be attending our festival to book an assessment.
This year we celebrate eight years of serving the writing community. As our industry is ever-changing and growing so is Creative Kids Tales. Starting from March, we’ll be featuring Australian services that bring their own touch of magic to the Australian children’s writing community. You’ll be able to access their interviews from our homepage. We’ve lined up some fantastic services and look forward to introducing you to these organisations and the people who run them.
Our deadline has closed for the Creative Kids Tales Story Collection Vol 2. All submissions have been received and are with our editing team for the next step. Keep watching for more information about this publication.
Look out for more information about workshops we’ll be running for both kids and adults this year.
