Summer School: Writing for the Education Market



George Ivanoff




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

George Ivanoff


Secondary school text books are specialised and written by experts in the relevant field; but 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. But writing for the education market is quite different to writing for the trade. Find out all about it in this workshop.

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 a foot in the door.

This workshop develops employment-related skills.

George recently wrote an article about writing for the education market in The Victorian Writer. You can read the article on this website.
