Lulu Jr., the children’s division of the self-publishing platform Lulu.com, has teamed up with educational software firm FableVision Learning for a new venture called My Awesome Publishing Company!, a self-publishing platform for kids.
The online book publishing platform teaches kids how to create a book from idea to print edition. The tool guides young writers through writing, production, marketing and distribution until they ultimately publish their own book.
The company is pushing it to both educators as a way to engage kids in the classroom. The tool works on both mobile devices and desktops, so kids can start a project on say a classroom computer and then work on it on their iPad at home, for instance.
