SNAICC is excited to announce that we are launching the 1000 Deadly Kids, 1000 Deadly Books initiative through a partnership with Kids Own Publishing.
The initiative is a new project designed to coincide with National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day, which will see kids across the country create and publish their own books.
1000 Deadly Kids, 1000 Deadly Books is a large-scale book-publishing project that will help children tell their stories and share them with their communities. Sharing stories is an important tradition. This project gives children the opportunity to draw on local culture and use their imaginations to publish their own stories.
Schools, early childhood education and care services, cultural centres and others can run their very own book-making workshop and work with us to publish the books created. Children around the country will have access to the tools to create books that can be published both in print and online. Information on a special publishing app, WePublish, can be found in this year’s SNAICC Children’s Day bag and accessed online.
The first 20 people to put their hand up for 1000 Deadly Kids, 1000 Deadly Books will be sent a free copy of SNAICC’s self-publishing kit for children (valued at $60).
