Competition Time!
  The National Child Writes Competition is open and the team are ready to deal with the deluge of entries! This year, there is a twist. The competition used to run for a couple of months, with the winners being announced towards the end of the school year. This time, the doors are OPEN until we receive 500 entries. Why 500 – well, at $10 an entry, and 100% of the entry fees going to the Child Writes Fund, this will generate $5000 – enough to offer a 5x5 Version of the Child Writes Create a Children’s Picture Book Program for a school or community group where children are in crisis. Promise, all the administration is donated by Boogie Books, the prize ($2000 worth of mentoring for a writer and an illustrator and a publishing agreement) by Emma

Lily Fabourama Glamourama won a SILVER in the International Independent Publishers Awards, for Best Children’s Illustrated eBook, and whilst I couldn’t get to New York to pick up the award, I was lucky enough to be sent the medal and share it the moment with friends on the night of the awards ceremony. http://www.independentpublisher.com/article.php?page=2175 You will see an amazing array of incredible books, published by passionate and energetic creators, including amazing Australian titles, and from Nick Earls and GOMA, Brisbane.

Celebrating this exciting win, we would love to give you a copy of the amazing Teachers Resource developed by education consultant, Jen Graham with every copy purchased. This is a wonderful gift for your school, your school’s library, or any fabulous, glamorous people in your life.

Melanie & Me
  remind everyone it belongs in EVERY SCHOOL LIBRARY IN AUSTRALIA! We have had some really amazing donors who have ensured more copies of the book have been printed and we would love to make sure they are in school libraries around Australia. They have already been distributed in South East Queensland and in Northern New South Wales, Sydney and Melbourne, but if you would like a copy for your library, would you be so kind as to order the book, and simply pay for postage?  
I’D LOVE ONE!

  As a parent and as a teacher, sometimes you can feel your last remnants of creativity leech away as you gift the child in front of you with the last vestiges of an idea, a thought, a suggestion. It can be frustrating to say the least. Another time that is challenging for the aspiring creative is when you are convinced you don’t have enough time to take away from all the other areas of responsibility in your life! We have been working towards addressing both of these two ‘biggies’, (well, three if you include having ‘I want to write a book’ on your bucket list!) and we have created a step-by-step hand-held program for adults to help that creative process. It is all set up – videos to talk you through each step, downloads of worksheets and more written information those of you who find videos exhausting! You will be guided through the entire process of creating a children’s picture book, from establishing the original idea underpinning the book, through the phases of writing, to using professional tools for illustration (like Luca’s colour chart) to the books publication and beyond.
