Illustration by Karen Erasmus



Subscribers will notice that I’ve revamped the e-zine giving it a crisper, cleaner feel.

This week’s ‘Illustrator of the Week’ is Karen Erasmus, thank you Karen.

A new segment, ‘Publishers’ Pet Peeves‘ gives some insight into what NOT to do when submitting your manuscript.

Thank you to everyone who contributed industry news this week. PIO was chock-a-bloc full of writing and illustrating opportunities, competitions, workshops, useful books, blogs, websites and much more.

If you would like to see a copy of this week’s e-zine just drop me a line and I’ll get one right to you.

PASS IT ON is the most up to date children’s writing/illustrating industry newsletter – at 70 cents/week it’s an absolute bargain.

Publishers’ Pet Peeves

Over the next few weeks I will be contacting Australian Publishers & Editors of Children’s books and asking them…

What are your Pet Peeves?

So far the response has been fantastic. It seems that publishers are more than happy to help educate their potential writers as to what NOT to do to avoid any needless aggravation.

In next week’s issue of PASS IT ON, I will be including some general responses from a number of publishers as well as specific Pet Peeves from Dyan Blacklock, Publisher and General Manager of Omnibus Books.

If you are at that stage in your writing where you feel ready to begin submitting your work then you can’t afford to miss this opportunity.

If you don’t yet subscribe to PASS IT ON and you’d like to sample a free copy, contact me jackiehosking [at] bigpond [dot] com and I’ll get one right to you.

And don’t worry writers – I will be following up Publishers’ Pet Peeves with What gets on a Writer’s Wick, so get your thinking hats on and let me know.

And remember…Knowledge is Power, pass it on.
