Online Literature Festival

I’m excited to be part of this year’s Queensland Online Literature Festival (22 Aug-9 Sep).  The festival is an amazing opportunity for school kids from all over Queensland to hear from some of Australia’s best authors. Thirty writers are involved this year and you can connect with them whether you’re in Boulia, Biloela or Brisbane (or anywhere in between).

My slot is 10.30am on Tuesday August 30. It’s a very special day because it’s also my son’s 18th birthday!

I’ll be talking about where I got the ideas for my Hazard River adventure series for young readers and the inspiration for my Choose Your Own Ever After stories. I’ll also share how you can get ideas for your stories.

 

Dymocks Brisbane is offering FREE SHIPPING on book orders as part of the Online Literature Festival. Contact them on 07 3007 2800 or briscorp@dymocks.com.au to place your order.

If your school would like to be involved you can register on the Queensland Government site here.  (Only Queensland schools can register).

Other great writers and illustrators on the program include Pamela Rushby (pictured above), Michael Gerard Bauer (pictured at top of page), Samantha Wheeler (pictured at top), Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton,  Tristan Bancks, Jack Heath and Dave Hackett.

Hope to see you on the 30th!
