Writing Festivals

What a great time I had at Voices on the Coast last week. The festival is held every year in Mooloolaba, Queensland (love saying that word – just rolls off the tongue). What I enjoy about writing festivals, and especially those for children, is being able to meet my young readers, visit new places, and hang out with fellow writers.

Voices was hosted by Immanuel Lutheran College and the University of the Sunshine Coast and organised by  Kelly Denham. She looked after us so well, it was hard to come home to Melbourne.

My two minders, Alice and Matt were just great. I couldn’t have done without you. Thanks so much guys!

My next festival gig is the Melbourne Writers Festival in August.
