Online Literature Festival

6/09/2013

Over the last two weeks many of our students joined in live web conferences with authors.

Ms Gilhooley (Library / ICT Teacher) assisted classes to access the sessions and assisted students to interact with the special guests.

Students asked Jackie French if she becomes emotional when writing.  They found out that she cried doing her research for her book 'Hitler's Daughter' and it took her months before she could go back to write that part of her book. Jackie shared some tips for writing and gave our students her postal address so they could take up her invitation to send her some of their writing.

Poet, 'Ghostboy' had our giggling students on their feet experiencing poetry with their senses and their whole body. At the end of the session our students told Ghostboy that they found that he had inspired them to create poetry of their own.​
