This is a quick update of what’s been going on.
* I taught 3 fun holiday workshops at Ku-ring-gai Art Centre in January.
* I have just finished teaching creative writing classes for Term 1 at Ku-ring-gai Art Centre. I have 24 terrific kids and some outstanding writers in there. We made a class book again to share their work.
* I have had a story accepted in the School Magazine called ‘The Year of the Monkey’ It will be coming out later this year.
*One of my students won the State Rail Safety writing competition with one of his poems. The prize is his teacher (me) and 5 of his friends get to go for a tour underneath Central Railway Station. That’s later in April.
* I am still the President of the Children’s Book Council Northern Sydney Sub Branch (this is the 5th year) we have lots of terrific events planned. You can check out details at www.nsw.cbca.org.au/pages/northern-sydney.html
* I’m looking forward to the CBCA National Conference at the Menzies in Sydney on 19th-21st May. You can book on the CBCA NSW website.
*One very exciting thing that happened was my son got married in March. Now both our kids are married.
* I am going to do a bit of a re-vamp on this web-site and blog in May. Stay tuned.
Roll on 2016. It’s shaping up to be a fabulous year in the children’s book world.
