What a highlight to my year so far! Being the Writer-in-Residence and on-site blogger at the Ipswich Festival of Children’s Literature has proved to be as exciting and inspiring as I’d hoped.
With 27 blogs over 10 days on-site, great conversations with authors and illustrators over 5-star meals, lots of laughs and hundreds of images later, I’m now home recovering in more ways than one. (A hazard when working with kids is the ease one picks up a flu virus).
I’m so grateful that the Festival organiser, Jenny Stubbs picked me to be their inaugural blogger. It was a wonderful opportunity to do what I love most, sharing my stories and the love of story with young children, mixing with some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s best children’s authors, illustrators and storytellers, taking photographs with my lovely Canon 550D DSLR, and of course, blogging.
In case you missed the blogs, here is the LINK TO THE FESTIVAL SITE.
Here are some (from 3000+) of my images taken on site…
