Write Links is a support group for children’s writers and illustrators.
Our goal is to establish a Children’s Literature centre in Queensland where young people can interact with authors, illustrators and storytellers. We aim to engender a love of literature in Queensland children and young people through our projects and events, such as:
- The Travelling Suitcases
- The ReadUp! Program
- Story Links reviews and resources
- Workshops and Competitions for adults and children
- The Narelle Oliver Lecture (Annual Lecture in Children's Literature)
We support creators of story through events and programs such as
- Write Links – Creating Kids’ Books
- Romancing the Stars
- StoryArts Brisbane Conference
- Book Links Mentorship
- Book Links Award for Children's Historical Fiction
- Exhibitions of Illustration
- Writers' and Illustrators' retreats
Our long-term vision is to have our own building where children will be able to be immersed in visual and written art and interact with the creators.
