Welcome to the December 2018 edition of CKT
Happy 7th Birthday, Creative Kids Tales!
Wow, I can’t believe this month we are celebrating our 7th Birthday. Where have the years gone?
We’ve had another fun filled amazing year in the Australian children’s writing industry and have welcomed lots of new emerging authors and illustrators to the Creative Kids Tales family.
We held our first writer’s festival and launched the Creative Kids Tales Network Facebook page.
Our network page was designed to offer you a more inclusive platform - a place where you can start a conversation and share your latest successes. Or if you prefer, just to ask those hard-hitting industry questions.
Early in the year, we launched CKT Author Personal Training. It’s been humbling to be able to work together with authors and help propel them to the next level on their writing journey.
Next year we’ll be running more workshops for kids and adults. And don’t forget the fantastic line-up of children’s writing industry royalty that will be speaking at the next Creative Kids Tales Writers’ Festival on 6 April (2019) at Gymea Tradies. There are a few seats still available with a sprinkling of manuscript assessments also available. To avoid disappointment, book early.
Will the next instalment in the Creative Kids Tales Story Collection sell out as quick as our first publication? Look out for more information on this publication early in 2019.
But most of all, YOU are the reason we continue every year. Being able to support, nurture, inspire and educate you is why we do what we do.
As we eagerly await what our 8th year will bring, we hope you will be there right alongside us for the ride.
On behalf of Rod, Emma, Fiona, Susan and myself, we thank you for inviting us to be a part of your creative world.
Before we sign off this year, we have the all-important Creative Kids Tales Birthday celebrations. Please join us on our Creative Kids Tales Network Facebook page on 16 December from 8.30pm (Sydney time), for an hour of fun, laughter and games.
We have tonnes of prizes to give away from our friends at:
