Are you an emerging children's or YA author or illustrator whose "work is unpublished or self-published, or whose work is as yet published solely by educational publishers, or who has created no more than one commercially published book"? If you are, this information may be of interest to you:
The Ian Wilson Memorial Fellowship is a new fellowship, created by the May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust to honour founding Chair, the late Honourable Ian Wilson AM.
