Winter School: Writing for the Education Market
Summary:The primary school education market, an often-ignored area of publishing, can be a great pathway into the children’s writing industry.
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.
