Writing at the National Library

Writing at the National Library

Having just returned from the Bologna Book Fair (I did have two days rest and yes, I will be posting about Bologna shortly) it was a driving day down to Canberra to one of my favourite places, the National Library, in time for a Thursday afternoon Writing Workshop.  Thanks to Ben and the crew down there for organising […]

@ the National Library of Australia

@ the National Library of Australia

Late in 2014 I received an email from Susan Hall, publisher at the National Library of Australia informing me that they would be holding an exhibition about the history of Beijing, using items from the National Library of China as well as from their own extensive Asian Collection. … I was wondering if you would be interested […]

Back to the Glasshouse

Back to the Glasshouse

What a thrill it was yesterday to be back at one of my favourite Sydney haunts running a writing workshop for a group of award winning primary school students. This year the State Library of NSW was hosting the Write On awards an annual writing competition open to all primary students in Years 1 to 6. They had to […]

Sparkling Lambton Public

Sparkling Lambton Public

Eeek – I forgot to add a note about my terrific day at Lambton Public School up Newcastle way last week. Lots of driving. I left home with the sun just greeting the morning, and drove and drove and drove and drove and as I told the students – most of them were still in bed […]

AFCC 2015 – day one

“Here we go again. I remember this road quite well,” I thought as we were shimmying and skimming down the road (and there was some shimmying and skimming … it was wet) from Changi Airport in Singapore, in the taxi at 10pm last night. And when I pulled up at the hotel – it was just as […]

Ahlcon School hello!

Ahlcon School hello!

Hello to all the students and teachers at the Ahlcon International School. At the last minute I was able to squeeze in a quick and very fleeting visit to them and I was so glad that I did! What a wonderful school. The students and teachers must have really wanted to see me because this was a Saturday […]

Off to the Mountains

Off to the Mountains

Thursday morning found us at Delhi airport – this time to fly to Dehradun. Time for more school visits. We were told that most people wouldn’t fly for such a short time (less than an hour) but the plane was full. You should drive (that would endure too much queasiness for sure) or you should […]
