Year of Writing for Children – 2011

January 5, 2011

Categories: Victorian Writers Centre, writing for children course 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)" 😛 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…)
