I'll be running workshops with years 7-9 students as part of Meanjin Writers' Day Camp on September 5 in Mt Gravatt! I'll be presenting alongside Kyrra Wilks, author of fantasy adventure novel The Seven - a very inspiring young writer!

If you're in years 7-9 in South-East Queensland and keen on writing, or know someone who is, you should register! You can find out more on the Australian Literacy Educators’ Association website. Here's a bit more info, from their site:
