Ipswich Festival of Children’s Literature

This week I’m at Ipswich Festival of Children’s Literature and Brisbane Writer’s Fest. Lots of fun sessions. Looking forward to Thursday at Ipswich doing My Life and Other Stuff I Made Up sessions with Gus Gordon and Friday’s Book Trailers session at BWF with YA writer, Maggie Stiefvater.

The pics in this post are from this afternoon at Ipswich City Hall. I was following Andy Griffiths which is a tough gig but the audience were super-attentive and had some interesting ideas to share. We were brainstorming a sibling rivalry story and these were some of the things that their brothers and sisters had done to them! Definitely going into the story. Did your bro’s and sisters do anything weird or mean to you when you were a kid?

    Yep – my older brother used to fart on my head and tell me I was adopted…..not in the same instance!

    Tha'ts amazing. I would never have thought of book ideas coming from a gathering like this, and definitely not one right near my home in Ipswich! I won't be surprised if we don't see more budding authors from Australia after this!
