Executive Director Angelo Loukakis is committed to writers as a renowned author and former publisher. THANKYOU!!!
On the ASA current elected Committee of Management there are Australia’s much loved children’s writers and illustrators – authors Hazel Edwards, Sophie Masson, Elizabeth Hutchins, Anita Heiss and talented children’s illustrators Ann James, Frane Lessac, Elise Hurst. THANKYOU!!!
The December issue of ‘Australian Author’ Magazine has a youth literature focus. THANKYOU !!! to the editor Michael Visontay
My article ’Wizards, vampires and elbow grease’ has a front cover teaser – ‘Searching for the next JK Rowling Suzanne Gervay attracts young readers’. It was a chance to reflect on youth literature.
I realised that being a creator of children’s & young adult work is a special journey which despite the obstacles, offers great rewards.
I had an opportunity to acknowledge some of the fabulous authors and illustrators – not all of course, so apologies – but a few – Deborah Abela, Duncan Ball, Jackie French, Oliver Phommavanh, Steph Bowe the young blogger and her remarkable auction and entry into the market with ‘Girl Saves Boy’.
