May 29-30: Scribblers Festival family weekend

Scribblers is an annual festival of literature and arts for young people in WA.

This year’s festival sees 26 children’s book authors, illustrators, and all around creatives (including me) meeting at a new venue, the Subiaco Arts Centre.

I’ve got a couple of sessions in the Schools Program that I’m super excited about … plus I’ll be part of the the festival’s Family Program on Saturday May 29 – Sunday 30. Brace yourself for a weekend packed with story battles, LEGO Masters, Book Doctors, Teen Podcasters, and more hands-on creativity than your hands can handle!

Here’s a quick list of my sessions on Sunday May 30th.

  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!

  3. I’ll be meeting you soon James! I’m one the Curating Kids from Perth Festival! Can’t wait to meet you! 😀
