Showcasing Young Writers

During my school visits and author talks, I’m regularly asked varying combinations of the following questions by encouraging teachers and parents: “We have a student/child who’s a talented and enthusiastic writer. How can we foster their love of creative writing and help them showcase their work? Where/how can they share their writing? What resources, competitions and/or writing courses are available which specifically cater for children?”

I hope the following resource sheet goes some way to answering these questions. The collation of it has been on my to-do list for some time, and contains information on children’s writing competitions and courses that I personally know of, as well as recommendations from generous author friends in the Kidlit Facebook Group ‘The Duckpond’. Please note, it has primarily been written for Victorian Primary School children, and is by no means exhaustive….but a good launching pad, in any case, for the many talented Primary School writers out there. Enjoy!
