Online school presentations for students and professional development for teachers from the country’s best writers and illustrators.
The Australian Children’s Laureates have a huge impact on children and young people’s success in writing and illustration. With a combined knowledge of over 150 years of writing and illustrating children’s books, they have shown thousands of students how to discover their passion for writing, reading and illustrating, as well as developing skills with proven lifelong benefits.
From 14th October 2021 everyone can access this wealth of knowledge and experience through a series of pre-recorded videos. They address the key questions students ask as well as showing teachers ways to engage students in these vital skills.
Go to our shop to book our presentations from Ursula Dubosarsky and Alison Lester. New presentations from other Laureates will be available next year.
