Does your wish list have 'I want to write a book' on it? 

Above is a double spread from Mairead's book 'Noah'.  As an illustrator / author, she is well and truly emerging in her career, as this is her second book and she is 10!  We really do 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 yet, totally do-able.  You just need to stay focused for a little longer than you do for normal things.

For the last ten years, we have been guiding children through the process of creating a children's picture book and we know the methodology is applicable to adults.  Yes, adults have also guided 'their inner child' through the process with great success.  Regardless of the path you take, correspondence, school based or classes in the community, Child Writes can help you achieve the dream of creating your own picture book...

Reviews Just in...

My mother ALWAYS told me not to talk about money - but I can't help it!  I have just written out a cheque for Katie Chicalas.  A hardcopy of her book was ordered print on demand and went out west!  All Child Writes authors receive 100% profit on their sales.  

It is so easy to get carried away with your own book, yet, when others are gracious and kind enough to review it for you, sharing frank and honest feedback, it is worth listening.  The support this industry shows never ceases to amaze me..

Child Writes - in a nutshell! 
As a guest, I attended the Brendan Burchard's Expert Academy in Sydney last month.  Incredible opportunity to meet the most eclectic group of passionate educators, from the most diverse range of fields imaginable!  I described what I do as this...

"I help children create stronger communities, 
ensuring their voices are heard, 
by providing platforms for their story telling."
