Ever wondered how to work with an illustrator? Pitch your children’s book to an editor?

Christina Booth will take you through this and more in her workshop. Learn how to create strong characters, find the right voice, edit, use visual language, and approach the industry including publishers and agents. Suitable for both writers and illustrators.

Christina is a trained teacher and landscape artist. She started her publishing career as an illustrator to great writers such as Colin Thiele, Max Fatchen and Christobel Mattingley. In 2007 Christina’s first picture book Purinina, A Devil’s Tale (Lothian Hachette) was published. Christina works from her studio overlooking a lake and a variety of wildlife. She illustrates her own books and great stories for other authors. A number of her books have won awards including Kip (Windy Hollow Books), the story of a noisy rooster living in the city, which won an Honour Book Award in the 2010 CBCA (Children’s Book Council of Australia) Book of the Year Awards, and Welcome Home (Ford Street Publishing), the story of a whale as she returns to her ancestors home, which won the Environmental Award for Children’s Literature in 2014.
