I taught two more workshops for kids at Ku-ring-gai Art Centre in the school holidays. I really enjoy doing these. I had 12 kids each day to play with from 10-4pm. That’s 6 hours of writing fun. There are lots of ways to tell stories. We write poems, sing songs, draw pictures, tell jokes, dream up lots of story ideas and after lunch we all jump in and write a story. Lots of fun. I’m looking forward to doing some more full-day workshops in the January holidays.

Also my Monday and Tuesday afternoon classes have started again for Term 4. The classes are full and I’m delighted and surprised by the creative stories and poems that are being written by the kids.
