Authors & Illustrators

South Australia has a reputation for producing many successful children’s writers and illustrators over the years. With the input of Raising Literacy Australia, the Little Book Press is keen to encourage and promote creative South Australians eager to produce a children’s book.

Author and Illustrator Mentoring Initiative

Thanks to the support of the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation, the Author and Illustrator Mentoring Initiative enables well-established picture book creators to nurture the talents of two new writers and two new illustrators from South Australia. Their work will be published by Little Book Press and included in a future book pack to be distributed to over 21,000 children across South Australia.

The key objectives of the initiative are to provide professional development and employment opportunities for emerging picture book authors and illustrators and support emerging artists to develop their artistic practices. It also creates new audiences for their work and provides employment opportunities for established authors and illustrators in a mentoring role.
