July 27-31: Littlescribe Mini-Writing Festival

A whole week of live, interactive
online writing workshops  for schools!

Littlescribe has pulled together 12 authors for a week-long writers festival. Schools are invited to register their students to attend workshops across the 5 days. Every workshop is linked to the CBCA Book Week theme, Curious Creatures, Wild Minds.

Authors include: Andrew Daddo, Jackie French, Wendy Orr, Stephen Michael King, Oliver Phommavanh, Lisa Nicol, Kristin Darell, Katrina McKelvey, Susanne Gervay, Deborah Abela and James Foley (me!).

While the live workshops are strictly for schools, homeschoolers can access a resource pack after the event; it will include recordings of the workshops.

  1. We attended a workshop for homeschoolers today and it was awesome!! My 5 year old loves to create his own storybooks and now he wants to make a book and give it to his new hero – James Foley!! Thanks for your inspiration!

  2. Also in addition to my comment above, my 5 year old has now told me instead of being Iron Man or Spiderman when he grows up, he now wants to “work at the library and make books – like James Foley.” How amazing is that!

    1. That’s so nice to hear! Maybe he doesn’t have to give up being Iron Man or Spider-man though (maybe he could be a writer/illustrator as well as a superhero??)

      Thanks for the feedback Hayley!
