Sharing the launch of a writing and drawing competition 
which is only open to primary school aged children...
and they will WANT to be in it to win it!
We think the process of creating a children's picture book is entirely possible.  Not for a second are we even suggesting it is easy.  No way!  It is time consuming, demanding and totally do-able. In a search nationally, we have invited every primary school aged child to consider entering this competition - to find a writer and an illustrator whom Emma will mentor through the process of creating a very unique picture book and then it will be published!  See YOUR name in PRINT!  

Royalty, Commission, Money...
Invitations and news just in...
My mother ALWAYS told me not to talk about money - but I can't help it!  It has been a little slow sales wise, but am happy to say I am about to write out cheques for Khalaan Holt and Tiffany Forbes.  Authors have been busy though, reviews for Ingrid Meiklejohn and Hamish Donaldson, Cooper Young are available and more are in the pipeline!

Child Writes is hosting a FREE WORKSHOP at the Grid on Saturday 10th August for any child who is interested in a character building session as part of the Animated Spaces Project.  Let me know ASAP if you are keen!  The characters created may form part of Biograffetti, which is hosted by Ian McCallum.

We have a dream...
In the meantime...
and these too...
Did you know we are slightly obsessed about this becoming a reality - imagine a world where we can GIVE a tutor to a school, GIVE the Child Writes program to children...

We really, really, really need to sell more of these!
Yes, an unashamedly brash request - if we sell the first print run, we then can reorder and THEN start generating an income to contribute to the Foundation..
As well as the text book, you might like to buy a budding illustrator a full illustration kit!  It includes everything a Child Writes student uses to illustrate their own picture book - so wouldn't that be perfect for you too...
Out and about...
Just recently, an author visit to the Douglas Daly School... But Child Writes was also part of the Byron Bay Writers Festival, at St Finnbarrs in Byron Bay and is in Geelong next week.  Busy busy days, but happy days!

Last call - any one interested?
I know we started with the competition, but just HAVE to finish with the competition again!  We have already received the first entry and would love love love your help sharing the word.  There are downloadable flyers on our website for you to share - remember, we are looking for budding authors and illustrators to work with next year.
