Adult Program Story by Rebecca Sheraton
This interesting session gave us a chance to meet three people working in publishing in Queensland from Wombat Books, Rhiza Press, Yellow Brick Books and Word Wings.
Rochelle Manners is the owner and editor of Wombat Books (children’s) and Rhiza Press (young adult). Rochelle loves to publish books for school aged children and she describes the purpose of the books on her list is that they provide entertainment of small issues and have a takeaway message. She doesn’t publish board books or counting books.
Ann-Marie Finn is both an illustrator and publisher with Yellow Brick Books. She loves picture books because they are visually appealing. Ann-Marie likes quirky, fun and humorous stories. Next year she will publish 5 books and they are open to submissions.
JR Poulter has established her business called Word Wings. She explained how she likes to hire and collaborate with illustrators for her books that she has written.
Thank you to these ladies for sharing your knowledge with the conference attendees.
