It is always a privilege taking enthusiastic budding writer’s in Year 4 & 5 to the Brisbane Writer’s Festival. Students attended many workshops, the first helped by James Foley who inspired the boys to create character through picture and storytelling. He used humor and absurdity – a most hilarious workshop. Leigh Hobbs taught the boys how to illustrate Old Tom as well as the intricate ways in which you can add mood, feelings, and personality to their own characters in any given story. Students visited the bookshops and lined up patiently to chat with authors new and much loved, and such excitement ensued when the boys discovered Anna Fienberg (Author of Tashi series) was available for signings. Sincere thank you to Mrs Schinckel for supporting this event and inspiring our boys to read, write and illustrate.
