Year of Writing for Children - 2011

2011 is the Year of Writing for Children with Karen Tayleur.
Well, that's what it says in the Victorian Writers Centre program, so it must be true.

Which means I have been sitting here lately thinking about the shape of the course —
which will be 5 Sundays, 10am to 4pm over the course of the year.
It's an exciting idea for me — to liaise with writers over a long period rather than a few weeks here or a term there.
Thinking about other people and writing is a sure way to get me thinking about the shape of my own writing. At the moment I am exploring Story Beginnings and exercises to let the imagination flow.

See you in March!

i wish i was doing the course!!!

you need to teach one titled: "how to write a book as good as SIX (or, as good as you can get it, as clearly the book is awesome and you'll never write as good as it)" :P i'd so go!

Hey Megan, thanks for your kind comments. I would imagine we wouldn't get anything done if you were in class as there would be a lot of class debate (actually, think that could be fun...)
