The CBCA NSW Branch has been running this program since 1996. It aims at fostering the talent of aspiring writers of children's literature across Australia and is open to all Australian citizens residing in Australia.
The 2018 winner will receive the Charlotte Waring Barton Award, named in honour of Charlotte Waring Barton (1797–1867), the author of Australia’s earliest known children’s book.
Sponsored by HarperCollins Children’s Books, this extensive mentorship program involves two - three-hour guidance sessions with a published HarperCollins author, as well as an additional three hours with HarperCollins staff, including a publisher, an editor and a marketing communications manager.
Entries for the Aspiring Writers Mentorship Program close on 30 June 2018.
