Kevin Price - Editor

Perth, Western Australia, Australia

I'm a teacher, writer, editor, partner in a small press, and part way through a creative writing PhD as a student of story.

Overview

Through my Born Storytellers program between 2005 and 2015, I have edited and published 62 short story anthologies of children's writing, featuring some 670 young authors. My first novel: a young-adult, magical realism, adventure novel will be released by Crotchet Quaver during the second half of 2016. My political thriller, which is the creative component of my PhD, will be published sometime during 2017. My publishing imprint, Crotchet Quaver is committed to publishing noteworthy books and this year will add a poetry anthology, as well as new picture books for younger readers.
