Professional development for artists

Children’s Books Ireland is dedicated to supporting artists; illustrators, authors, poets, translators, publishers and storytellers; who create stories for children and young people.

We create opportunities for artists to have fulfilling and meaningful careers so that young readers in Ireland can experience the richness and diversity of contemporary Irish society and culture as expressed in literature.

From filming tips to advice on fee conditions and guidelines, we hope these resources will help artists promote their work to a wider audience.

We also hold regular professional development workshops and virtual coffee mornings for artists, details of which can be found in the 'News and Events' section of our website.
