Who are We
Formed in The Sutherland Shire in 2011, Creative Kids Tales is an industry recognised site designed to assist Australian emerging and established children’s authors and illustrators on their journey to publication.
We continue to grow in an ever-changing industry by providing resources to empower, nurture, motivate and lead you.
CKT has published over 100 authors and illustrators through our anthologies, and we’ve helped dozens secure publishing contracts.
This industry is competitive. Publication is achievable if you are prepared to work. In a saturated market, your work must be strong amongst the competition, your voice clear and unique.
We don’t sugar coat our advice, because that never helps anyone. If you are serious, Creative Kids Tales can help you to succeed.
At eight years old, Georgie was bitten by a redback spider. That same year, she won her first writing competition.
As a grown-up, (do children’s authors ever grow up?) Georgie is an internationally published award-winning author, wife and mother of three.
Never knowing where inspiration will strike next, Georgie carries a notepad wherever she goes. She even has a waterproof notepad stuck to her shower wall.
Georgie is terrible at keeping secrets. Just ask the thousands of school children around the country she’s shared writing secrets with.
Obsessed with helping kids to bring their stories to life, Georgie has meticulously structured workshops and presentations designed to harness kids’ imaginations and free their inner author.
Georgie believes all emerging authors and illustrators should have a voice. In 2011, she founded Creative Kids Tales. Through this industry recognised resource Georgie has guided many authors towards their first publication contracts. She’s even tried on the publisher’s hat to see how it would fit. It didn’t talk back like Harry Potter’s did, but it has helped dozens of children’s authors and illustrators realise their publication dream.
In December 2019, Georgie launched an exciting new direction for Creative Kids Tales, The Creative Kids Tales Speakers Agency, where our handpicked, experienced professionals will entertain and inspire those attending your next literary event.
Connecting Authors and Illustrators with young minds. Audience members will be transported into the creative world of authors through engaging story-telling and educational content.
