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.
WORKSHOP: Drawing Dinosaurs
TALK: Spooky Tales
Free – but bookings essential.
ILLUSTRATOR BATTLE: Pencils Drawn!
Free, no booking required

June 6-7: WA Day festival
