Zanni Louise is passionate about writing quality books for children of all ages and inspiring people to write their own stories.
Based in the Byron Bay hinterland, Zanni has published twelve books, including the popular ERROL picture book series, STARDUST SCHOOL OF DANCE chapter books and TIGGY AND THE MAGIC PAINTBRUSH. Her new series HUMANKIND is out in 2020.
She’s collaborated with several award-winning picture book illustrators, and has twice been nominated for the CBCA Book Awards. ARCHIE AND THE BEAR was selected for the prestigious White Ravens International Catalogue. Her books are sold in over twenty foreign territories.
As well as appearing at festivals, Zanni mentors writers and runs writing workshops for kids and adults Australia-wide. She is one of the Australian Writers Centre tutors.
You’ve written a story. Then what? The next step is putting on your editor’s hat and editing! Editing is an essential part of the writing process, but most kids stop at the first draft. In this fun workshop, Zanni leads kids through professional editing techniques they actually like! One Year 3 boy reported after a Sweaty Brain Editing session: ‘I speak for everyone, well myself at least, when I say I discovered how much I loved editing!’
