Curated by Kids

Meet this year's dream team!

In 2019, ten book enthusiasts aged 10 – 12 will curate their own program of literary sessions for Writers Week Family Day.

Our Kid Curators work with local, national and international authors and illustrators. Across two days of workshops, curators learn all the skills they need to design and present sessions at Writers Week. They’re in charge of the whole program, including designing the format for the sessions, deciding who will appear and developing questions to ask each guest. We also look at microphone technique and research the biography of each guest to develop interesting introductions!

In 2018 our Kid Curators interviewed authors like Maggie Beer, Sofie Laguna, Josie Boyle and Gabrielle Wang! Author Davina Bell said ‘I thought the Curated By Kids program was one of the best sessions I’ve ever been involved with’ and Maggie Beer’s agent said ‘The session … was fantastic! Maggie loved it.’ We can’t wait to reveal the full line up of Curated by Kids sessions for 2019.
