It's that time of year when I'm on the road talking books and creativity with kids and teens, hopefully inspiring them to read and to make their own stuff. Here's a collection of pics from recent talks and workshops with stories being created using sand, clay, Story Scrapbook app and even pen and paper.
Pics from Bardon Young Writers Week - an intensive week of creativity with 30+ talented young writers:

Queensland Writers Centre Workshops at State Library of QLD were lots of fun...
|Testing out my new short story, Freak, on a group of year 8 students.|
I managed to sneak into James Foley's brilliant character creation talk at the CYA (Children's and Young Adult) Conference:
And I made this... (Might need a little more work):
Story Scrapbook transmedia brainstorming workshop...
