Author, editor, mentor and former publisher, Jane Godwin is one of Australia’s most loved and respected writers.

Jane writes picture books and middle grade fiction. Her books have been published overseas and have won many awards, including the Queensland Premier’s Award (Children’s Books), the Aurealis Award and the Animal Welfare Award. Jane worked for many years as Children’s Publisher at Penguin Books Australia until she decided to write full time.

So, with that wealth of experience and such a talent for writing books that readers and critics both love, my chat with picture book author, Jane Godwin is a little longer than most Portable Magic conversations. But it is choc-full of wonderful insights and advice.

Thank you, Jane for being so generous with your time, your experience and your talent.
