Kids’ Own Publishing is a pioneering not-for-profit arts organisation that empowers children, families and communities from diverse cultural, social and linguistic backgrounds to share their stories through artist-led processes and community publishing. Children’s community publishing is widely endorsed by professionals in early learning centres, schools and libraries, as a highly effective way for children to engage with books. Kids’ Own Publishing was originally founded in Ireland in 1997 by Victoria Ryle and Simon Spain.  Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership continues in County Sligo with Orla Kenny at the helm.
