Book an Author & Illustrator

The Literature Centre has worked with some of Australia’s most awarded and acclaimed Authors and Illustrators of books for children and young adults since we opened our doors in 1993.

Within our building, the Centre offers a two-bedroom residence for interstate or regional WA Authors and Illustrators to stay with us while they conduct school sessions, and also while they create.  Some of our nation’s top picture books resulted in collaborations formed at our Centre between visiting Authors and Illustrators!  Something we are very proud to nurture and support.

There are a number of ways your students can meet, hear from, or workshop with an Author or Illustrator of children’s and young adult literature.  Your students can attend an Author/Illustrator workshop at our Centre or we'll arrange for them to come to your school where they will be 'in-residence.
