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.
