On Friday the 23rd of August 2013, I was invited by Mrs Poulos, the Librarian at All Saints Grammar, Belmore, Sydney to speak to Grade 6 for book week.
I threw together what I thought were the most important things to share about writing; world building, voice and POV. I also grazed lightly over characters and character emotion.
– What POV do you write in?
– Who inspired you to write?
– Who was you favourite childhood author?
There were many more and I’m sure you all understand what the vibe of a Grade 6 class can be like – exciting!
All in all it was wonderful to talk to the students and share a little author knowledge of what happens in an author’s writing life and some tips and tricks for better writing.
Well worth it. If I managed to successfully inspire a few children then my job was more than done.
Thanks for having me All Saints Grammar. Hope to do some workshops with you all in the future.
