Brisbane Writers’ Festival


​This year a group of students from Years 7, 8, and 9 were invited to participate. They proved to be fantastic ambassadors for the school. Each year level was given the opportunity to attend the presentation of three authors whose novels are aimed at the adolescent reader. Their behaviour was exemplary and they were enthusiastic and asked intelligent and insightful questions. The authors all shared with the students interesting aspects of their life experiences and how the insights gained have been beneficial in the creation of their novels. They also gave some helpful advice about how to become a writer. They were all generous with their encouragement and graciously answered the myriad of questions of the students.

The experience was a positive one for all students which was reflected in their enthusiasm and behaviour.
