Community Publishing Program

Kids’ Own Publishing offers a 6-8 week book publishing project with communities and organisations working with children (up to 20 children between the ages of 0-12).
We co-design a tailored project with our partners, and offer:
  • accessible, creative, fun workshops delivered by experienced artist facilitators
  • a project manager dedicated to the project
  • story and text development
  • book designers who specialise in children’s artwork
  • professional editing of the book
  • professional printing of a 16-24 full colour paperback children’s book with ISBN
  • a celebratory launch connecting everyone involved at the end of the project
  • reflection and feedback session post-launch.
Every child gets to take home their published book, which will also be shared with their local library. 

The whole process, from planning to launch, takes between 3-4 months. Prices for a community publishing program range $10,000 and $15,000 depending on variables like distance, timing, participant numbers and aims of the project.
