WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG AUTHORS / ILLUSTRATORS
COMPETITION OPENS!
One surefire way for one clever writer with a talented illustrator
 to have their very own children's picture book... 
with all the support we can possibly muster!

We think the process of creating a children's picture book is entirely possible.  Over 320 children have actually created their own title, and their books fly with Jetstar, are available on-line in our own bookstore, or are available to the world via AMAZON!  The process is amazing and again this year, we are hosting a competition to find a clever writer to pair with a talented illustrator to collaborate on their own picture book. If you know a child who loves the written word or who communicates with stunning images, we want to invite them to consider this competition...


Child Writes goes global!
News just in...




Every title in the Child Writes library is available for Kindle via Amazon! Did you know, the price of the books fluctuates with the aussie dollar, particularly given you have to set up the accounts in US dollars!  If you want a particular title, please simply search by the authors name and you should go straight to the page. How exciting!

The launch of 'Finnley's Great Escape' was last week and there has been a great deal of press!  Thank you Queensland Country Life, Rural Weekly and Toowoomba Life for your support.  

This wonderful book is available directly from the awesome people at Condamine Alliance .

Meet tutor Jodie Rigby...
Jodie is guiding THREE school based groups through the Child Writes process this year.  All students are mid-flight to writing their own stories and she now intends to 'accelerate the story ideas the children had developed in earlier sessions and pin down the one idea they want to develop into the story they actually want to write.  They will expand on one idea and enhance the story, give it structure,shape and give it life.'  Wish you were there?

Award winning text book 'a must have'...
'Child Writes: Creating a Children's Picture Book is Child's Play' was the winner of the 2012 Best Adult Non-Fiction eBook in the international publishing awards - the IPPYS!  It is an inspiring, hand-holding, 'how-to' guiding you through the entire process of creating a picture book. Easy to follow chapters lead you logically from the development of an idea all the way to book launch and beyond.  The methodology is tested on children, so we know it works for adult writers too!  Other writers have described it as a 'must have'...
