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. 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 authors. But writing for the Education Market is quite different to writing for the trade. Find out all about it in this workshop.

This workshop will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

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
