Writing Workshop

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.

Sharing my failed teen horror movie project, Within the Woods.
Pics from Bardon Young Writers Week - an intensive week of creativity with 30+ talented young writers:

Some cool 

One of the coolest things I've seen created with our Story Scrapbook app.

A Story Safari pic, using sandplay for inspiration...

Queensland Writers Centre Workshops at State Library of QLD were lots of fun...

QLD Museum for inspiration...

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...

Story Scrapbook brainstorm about a radioactive cat. 
And another called Fear of Moose (the name of my band if I ever start one).
Students busy creating on our Story Scrapbook app.
