Write Angles - Just Right Words

Connecting authors & illustrators with students and teachers


Sharing author and illustrator hints and tips with schools

What is Write Angles?

Write Angles is all about connecting authors with schools and igniting a love of reading and writing in young minds and hearts.

The primary goal of Write Angles is to support authors and illustrators to promote their work in our local education institutions and share their vast knowledge and insights with students and teachers.

For authors, illustrators and storytellers,

opportunities as a member of Write Angles include:

Year-Round Promotion

Regular communication throughout the year with schools about your books, events, presentation themes and availability.

School Liaison

Initial booking liaison with schools for bookings. (You have the option of full liaison, including negotiating rates, risk assessments, presentation requirements and feedback for an additional fee.)

Showcase Page

Your personalised feature page in the Just Right Words Author & Illustrator Showcase will be updated as needed with your new books or events.

Social Media Promotion

Your profile, books and events will be visible and promoted where teachers hang out (Pinterest, YouTube, Facebook etc.).

Tailored Resources

Two pages of curriculum-aligned resources, either teaching notes or school visit activities, to accompany a book of your choice.

Quarterly Newsletter

Each term, receive a Write Angles newsletter packed with hints and tips for school visits and teacher notes, plus information on what’s happening in schools in the ACT region.

Podcast and YouTube Interview

Take the opportunity to participate in a Write Angles podcast and YouTube interview targeted at students and teachers.

Advice and Support

Receive valuable advice and feedback on teaching notes and school visit activities whenever you need it. Plus, receive a discount if you ask me to prepare and format additional activities.

Why should I join Write Angles?

As a member of Write Angles, you will no longer have to worry about the administrative side of author/illustrator talks, nor will you have to navigate the Australian Curriculum to create teaching materials and activities. Above all, you can focus on what you do best, leaving the other tasks (which I do best) to me.

I know the curriculum and how to apply it.

I know schools and how they operate.

I know what teachers and students want and need.

I’ve had over 26 years of experience in the classroom and presenting workshops to teachers through a number of forums. Being born in Canberra, and with the majority of my professional life in ACT schools, means I have the necessary connections in our education system. My knowledge of Google technology, social media marketing and workshop presentation via podcasts and YouTube has been bolstered by my connections with experts in these fields.
