Have you been working on a manuscript for a children’s book?
Walker Books Australia are looking for new diverse Australian stories for kids. They’ve launched an initiative called Walker Wednesday – a biannual event where they will be reviewing unpublished manuscripts from new and established writers.
Linsay Knight from Walker Books Australia said: “We are a company of big readers and are particularly keen to discover more about unsung Australians whose stories are woven into the fabric of our rich history or contemporary stories that make sense of the present and bring it to life. And is why we’re super excited at the thought of receiving manuscripts from the treasure trove of talented creators everywhere. Their voices need to be heard to inform, inspire and delight.”
If you have a children’s book manuscript (including picture books, junior fiction, middle grade and YA), here are the dates for Walker Wednesday.
2020 Walker Wednesday dates:
Wednesday 29th July: 9am until midnight AEST
Wednesday 25th November: 9am until midnight AEST
