Newcastle Writers Festival

Today the OC attended the Newcastle Writers Festival at the Newcastle Library. We participated in a gifted and talented writer’s workshop with author Gerry Bobsien, where students took part in a variety of creative writing exercises (I will publish these on the blog next week). We also met some other authors from the festival including Tristan Bancks and Aaron Blabey, who spoke with students and did personal book signings.

We were also lucky enough to be photographed for an article in the Newcastle Herald, so make sure you pick up a copy tomorrow.

Well done OC! Terrific behaviour and inspiring writing. I am looking forward to sharing some of our exemplary examples on our blog next week.
