Calling all young aspiring story book authors and illustrators – the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) WA branch is still running its annual Make Your Own Story Book Competition. It is open to WA students from pre-primary to Year 8 and closes on Friday 5 June 2020.
Welcome to May. How is our bookish tribe faring this month? Have you broken the Goodreads algorithm by smashing out your 2020 Reading Challenge in the first quarter? Here at Fremantle Press, right at the moment when the physical world seemed to contract to what was experienced from the lounge room or the home office, our local WA stories expanded into new territories and formats.
We may all be physically apart right now, but we’re closer than ever online. We’ve loved seeing the innovative ways our community is coming together virtually to keep spirits up and ensure we are all still well read. We’ve put together a list of the latest ways to get involved with your local authors, booksellers or publishers.
