Only 3 Days to go!
Mairead (above with Cr Carol Taylor, Toowoomba Regional Council and Mr Peter Rookas, CEO of the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation) has just published her second book and is pictured here explaining the process of creating a picture book at her book launch where she exhibited her original illustrations.
I would love to extend this opportunity to the children at your school.
The closing date for the latest Australia wide writing and illustrating competition for primary school aged children is fast approaching.
The competition, which closes on 30 November, calls for a short story (no more than 800 words), or three A4 illustrations, with the winner of each category be paired together and mentored, to produce a book – published in hard copy by Boogie Books and distributed by Child Writes – with royalties being paid to the author and illustrator from any book sales.
Queensland-based children’s writing organisation Child Writes is facilitating the competition and is well known for its advocacy for literacy and ability to empower children. Having worked hundreds of children from schools, mainly within Queensland, and the production of over 260 books written by children, Child Writes is looking forward to a new influx of talent from around the country.
We would greatly appreciate any assistance in communicating this competition to your students.
I would be more than happy to discuss the competition with you should you like more information. Please don't hesitate to contact me on 0438 990 211 or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
