Student Anthologies

Helping students see their creative writing published is one of Alanah’s favourite activities. In 2018, Alanah’s Y9 English class wrote science fiction stories and she turned them into a print book and eBook. The students were so excited to be ‘real authors’ and they were great for fundraising, so Alanah would love to offer this to teachers around the globe. Email for more information – print books usually cost around $10 each, while ebooks can be created for as little as $2.99 per student.
