Join Victoria Ellen and Annaleise Byrd for a session on using Instagram as a kidlit creator. Whether you’re new to Instagram, have an account but are not quite sure what to do with it, or are an old hand at the gram, this informative and practical session will have something for everyone. We’ll cover:

  • The benefits of using Instagram
  • Key things to think about
  • Posts, stories and reels
  • Captions and hashtags
  • Warnings, etiquette and more!

We’ll also look at some accounts we admire and give everyone an opportunity to share their Instagram handles so we can all follow each other. Come along to hear our top tips on how to step up your Instagram game!

Victoria Ellen is an aspiring picture book author/illustrator and artist. She gets a buzz out of being able to help others to reach their potential and shine. She spends her day to day with 5-12 year olds so if you’ve got a burning question but you think it’s silly, chances are it will not be the weirdest thing she’s been asked in the past 24 hours. She’s been on Instagram as @victoriaellencreates since 2022, so the learning curves are all still very fresh.

Annaleise Byrd’s debut middle grade novel, a humorous portal fantasy titled Losing the Plot, will be published by Walker Books Australia in 2024. She works part-time for the Ipswich District Teacher-Librarian Network and volunteers as social media coordinator for the book review website StoryLinks. Annaleise has been on Instagram since 2016 as @thebyrdandthebookworms.
