Abstract

This study aims to describe the profile of Indonesian children authors. The data source in this study were the five best of children story writing works entitled NT LMCA (Naskah Terbaik Lomba Menulis Cerita Anak) which are selected purposively. This study employs document analysis consisting of repetitive reading, categorizing, tabulating, and data inferencing. From the results, it is found that (1) there are more female authors in comparison with male, (2) ones ranging from ten to eleven years old; (3) all the authors have reading and writing interests; (3) most of them come of Java; (4) most of them go to public schools; and (5) they have father with a variety of professions. The implication of this study is that there are needs to optimize children literacy for male authors, for students in MI (Madrasah Ibtidaiyah)/Islamic Primary School, and for those living outside Java island.
