Do you have a Tale to Tell?

Tue 1 Sep 2020 to Wed 30 Sep 2020

We’re looking for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander writers and illustrators with a tale (or two) to tell.

Aboriginal Studies Press (ASP) are interested in publishing works which connect with young readers and capture their imaginations through stories about the rich culture and diversity of Australia’s First Peoples.

ASP  are accepting manuscripts and illustrations from a range of media and Indigenous languages from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers or illustrators.

What are we looking for?

  • Stories that connect with young readers, capturing their imaginations with rich cultural stories and illustrations, fiction and non-fiction.
  • Stories written in English, Indigenous language or both.
  • Illustrations can use a range of media, from watercolour, acrylic and coloured pencils to collage, photography and digital.
