In 2011 Georgie Donaghey launched Creative Kids Tales, an Australian website dedicated to assisting emerging children’s authors and illustrators on their journey to publication. Creative Kids Tales is a voice for authors who write for the children's and Young Adult genres. If you have a draw full of short stories, children’s poems or chapter books and are looking for a way to promote your name, then Creative Kids Tales is the perfect home for you.
We provide a comprehensive publishers listing, competition information, tips, networking opportunities, book reviews, interviews and everything you will need on your creative journey. Once you have been published or self-published we are only too happy to promote your book on our ‘Pitch ya book!’ page.
Our website has been endorsed by some of Australia’s best loved children’s authors http://www.creativekidstales.com.au/about/testimonials.html
Every month we chat with well-known Australian children’s authors about their journey to publication. So far we’ve interviewed Mem Fox, Jackie French, Deborah Abela, Susanne Gervay, Andy Griffiths, Belinda Murrell, Paul Jennings, Kate Forsyth and Leigh Hobbs just to name a few.
Each December our site is archived with the National Library’s Pandora archives which provides long-term access to Australian on-line publications of national significance.
