Education writers are paid to create resources that support the Australian primary school curriculum. If you think this sounds limiting, think again! An education writer can find themselves knee-deep in a historical fiction novel one moment and a biography of a famous inventor the next. It is engaging, varied and exacting all at once. Education writing is crafted to tightly written briefs and is heavily affected by editorial and design concerns, offering the perfect training environment for career writers. Writing for the education market sets writers up to spread their wings.

Find out how to get started in this introduction to the field. You’ll learn about education briefs and guidelines, how to accommodate editorial considerations, and the basics of education publishing contracts. You’ll find out what makes a winning manuscript, and you’ll learn skills easily transferable to trade publishing.

This course involves submitting short writing exercises, and giving and receiving peer feedback. Participants will receive limited tutor feedback.

Louise Park draws from a background in education, literacy and publishing to produce her bestsellers that include Zac Power Test DrivesSpy RecruitStar Girl, and the Harriet Clare series. She is the co-author of the hugely successful series, Boy v Beast and D-Bot Squad. Her latest middle grade series, a historical time-slip mystery trilogy, includes Grace’s Secrets and Grace’s Escape.
