Nadine Bates: QLD Writer & Producer, Like A Photon Creative

A writer and producer with a passion for crafting stellar children’s content, Nadine was a former teacher with Education Queensland (English and Drama) and started her own independent boutique picture book publishing company, Hootenanny Books. Speaking publically about her passion for children’s digital literacy on numerous industry panels led to Nadine being invited to write the children’s slate of programs at Network Ten, including Wurrawhy and Totally Wild. As an independent writer/producer Nadine went on to write freelance episodes of Handball Heroes for ABC3, content for Sesame Street USA and have the animated preschool series, Balloon Barnyard. Nothing excites Nadine more than creating beautiful stories and digital content for young audiences.

Nadine is currently completing a prestigious Australian Postgraduate Award scholarship doctorate on ‘Gender Parity in Children’s television’.
