New Exciting Literacy Programs for schools

The Australian Society of Authors (ASA) has developed a program  for Australian authors to promote Australian literature in schools, through it's Reading Australia BookPros (RA BookPros).

It provides an opportunity for authors to conduct writing workshops in the classroom and to introduce teachers to a new, free teaching resource: Reading Australia.



Students will benefit from access to a professional author and workshops are aimed at developing thinking, literacy and writing skills of students and at boosting enthusiasm for writing. ASA’s authors can help students plan their writing, dive into the action, build characters we care about, set pace, structure their writing and edit their writing. Authors can offer guidance on narrative writing (fiction and non-fiction), poetry, drama, illustration, graphic stories and more.


How it Works

Book an author to conduct a one-off workshop or to visit your school over a series of weeks. Authors are available for all primary and secondary age groups. Authors are able to tailor the workshops to the needs of students, the school and the curriculum, in consultation with the classroom teacher.  For teachers, the workshops are an opportunity for professional development through in-class modelling and the exchange of ideas.  Visit the ASA website for more information or use the booking form
