A gift for you
  You have that child in front of you, the one who ‘tells’ great stories at every opportunity yet is reticent to put pen to paper and is flummoxed at the thought of a writing task with a predetermined time frame or content. You want to pull your hair out! This is crazy – you know the kid can write… We have a fabulous long article for you, if you are interested, our ‘go to’ for creating a writer.

Child Writes Competition
It seems as though the changes in the terms and conditions of the Child Writes Competition haven’t deterred the most incredible aspiring primary school aged writers from all around Australia! The competition is open now until 500 entries have been received, then the next round begins. The reason: at $10 per entry (and the prize being worth over $1000!) the income from the competition will be $5000 – enough to GIFT a school in crisis a 5x5 Child Writes Program. If you are a member of a school you believe deserves this gift, get in touch! And definitely – if you have aspiring writers in your classroom AND your school believes in community collaboration, please, have them enter the competition!

May 2017 - Happy Mothers Day
  Of course, this is not the last thing on our list of priorities, just a lovely closing note for this newsletter!

Where is the True Ewe Launch
 

Child Writes publisher, Boogie Books has released a new book this week - ‘Where is the True Ewe’. It was written by Emma Mactaggart and illustrated by renowned artist, Mary-Kate Khoo. It is the story of the Little Green Sheep. She has finally grown up and has a family of her own. ‘It is a tricky ‘genre’ when creating a children’s book for adults, that children can indeed read and have read to them. We wrote this as a timely reminder for us all to be fully present as parents, only to find it is the children who are relating to this as it is the day in the life of their own mothers!’ Perfect gift for Mother’s Day… but hurry! FREE POSTAGE FOR THE FIRST 50 ORDERS…
