Getting a children’s book published in Australia. Top 3 Handy Resources To Get A Children’s Book Published in Australia

Often I meet a newish illustrator or writer who is looking for answers to this question: Where can I find the most relevant and important information that will help me get published? This is the same question I had in the beginning.

Every time I am queried, 3 top resources immediately come to mind, these I believe, are not only helpful; but extremely important when navigating  the children’s publication industry.

Here are my favourite top 3:

  1. Join The Society of Children’s Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). This society is an active group world-wide and a way to make friends in the industry, learn, and access a multitude of relevant  information. Go on… go join now! http://www.scbwi.org/Registration.aspx
  2. Sign up for PASS IT ON; a weekly newsletter for children’s literacy news that spotlights a children’s illustrator every week. (Australian based) It can be found on Jackie’s blog: http://jackiehoskingpio.wordpress.com/ 
  3. Buy an updated version of the annual Writers Market book. This version is best: 2014 Writer’s Market Deluxe Edition (Writer’s Market Online) You can sign up online and access updated contact lists for editors and publishers, but I prefer having a deluxe hard copy version that gives you access to the updated database as well.
