September 13 – 15
I have been given the most amazing of opportunities this year. I have been invited to be the guest blogger at StoryArts Festival Ipswich 2013. The Festival is a nationally renowned Children’s Literature Festival held biennially. Australia’s favourite Children’s authors and illustrators are invited to come and present free talks, performances, exhibitions, writing and illustration workshops and panels to children.
There is also a program for teachers, teacher librarians, and aspiring and emerging authors. Talks, panels and workshops will be offered alongside manuscript appraisal sessions. A gala dinner will be held where festival attendees will be able to mingle with the best of the best of Australian Children’s authors and illustrators. There are still a few places available for the Adult’s Program, so head on over to the Festival Blog to find out more and make a booking.
I will be attending the Festival for both the children’s and adult’s programs and will be blogging daily about the sessions. I will also be interviewing authors and illustrators. I couldn’t think of a better thing to do at a Children’s Literature Festival!
Stay tuned to my blog, and the Festival Blog, to read more about StoryArts Festival Ipswich 2013 and my adventures there!
