Practical and informative events designed to educate and enthuse children’s authors and illustrators.
#ProperBook is a series of professional development events originally created in collaboration with author and programmer Sarah Webb.
#ProperBook are practical and informative events designed to educate and enthuse children’s authors and illustrators at every stage of their career. Topics such as writing, illustrating and getting published; agents and what they do; how publishers operate; knowing when your work is ready for submission; designing and delivering festival, library and school events and financial advice to name a few are presented and discussed by experienced and knowledgeable Irish and international publishing and industry experts. Since 2017 Children’s Books Ireland has brought #ProperBook to the dlr LexIcon Library and Cultural Centre, Babóro International Arts Festival for Children, Listowel Writers Week and International Literature Festival Dublin.
Any upcoming #ProperBook events will be details on our events calendar.
