Today the OC headed off to the Writers Festival at the Newcastle Regional Library. Students began by participating in a workshop with author Kaz Delaney, where they looked at techniques for creating exciting beginnings and endings for stories. We enjoyed lunch in Civic Park and then returned for an author talk by illustrator and musician Matt Ottley. Zane was lucky enough to have an abstract portrait drawn by Matt! See the photos below.
Tune into NBN news tonight to see us in action at the Writers Festival!
There are still lots more programs on offer at the Writers Festival this week, including a family fun day on Saturday for anyone interested.
