Winter School: Writing for the Education Market



George Ivanoff




The primary school education market, an often-ignored area of publishing, can be a great pathway into the children’s writing industry.

George Ivanoff


Secondary school text books are specialised and written by experts in the relevant field but primary school publications (school readers, primary school non-fiction books, chapter books linked to the Australia curriculum and other educational resources) are a great opportunity for children’s writers. Writing for the education market is quite different to writing for the trade.

You will learn

  • the scope of the education market
  • the requirements of the education market
  • the do’s and don’ts of writing for the education market
  • how to respond to and follow guidelines
  • how to get your foot in the door.
