Wombat Books Blog

Wombat Books blog is the place to keep up to date with all the goings-on in the world of Aussie kid's books.

Submission dates for 2020

Early readers: 15th-30th of August 2020
Great stories with amazing protagonaists. To get an idea of an excellent series read Ruby Wishfingers by Deborah Kelly.
Middle fiction: All of October 2020
One or two protagonists, girls or boy, can be fantasy and contemporary. We will also consider science fiction. Middle fiction has no romance for us and nothing to do with sexuality. We jsut love to let kids be kids in our middle fiction. Friendship, family relationships, deep issues all encouraged.
