Soon the grounds and buildings at Woodlands, the historic house at Marburg will ring with the chatter of excited young readers and writers. (Ditto in Ipswich city and several small towns in the region.) The logistics of it all blows my mind away! So glad I'm the blogger and not the organiser!!
***************Many of the presenters at the Ipswich Festival will also appear at the popular CYA, the Children's and Young Adult Writers and Illustrators Conference in Brisbane during the weekend of the 10th-11th September. Check out their website.
This popular conference, with its workshops and master classes is aimed as Professional Development for new and established writers and illustrators of Children's and Young Adult literature.
The Sunday program, Hatchlings, is devoted to younger writers. (Illustration by the talented Bec Timmis).
