School Holiday Madness

September 23rd, 2012 · No Comments »

These school holidays I am going to be busy running sessions with kids. So if you identify as a kid, or you own some, check out these events:

Sydney Opera House – Creative Play

The Gruffalo’s Child is a cool performance at the Sydney Opera House and I will be in the foyers running interactive storytelling sessions with kids. So either before or after seeing the show, come hang out with me. Together we’ll sing, dance, dress up and journey into the deep dark woods. Ages 4 plus.

WHEN: Monday 24th, Wednesday 26th, Wednesday 3rd, Thursday the 4th. Various times throughout the day up until about 2pm.

WHERE: Western foyers, Sydney Opera House



* Please note I can’t guarantee your head will come off, so don’t sue me if you find yours still attached afterwards. I’ll try my best.

The Sydney Story Factory is a new not-for-profit creative writing centre for children and young adults. It is dedicated to igniting the spark of creativity in every child. In this workshop students write and perform a short comedy script. Fantastic for children 7 – 11 years old.

WHEN: 25 SEPT & 2 OCT, 10AM – 12PM

WHERE: Sydney Story Factor / Martian Embassy, Redfern

In other recent news:

I had a wonderful time yesterday afternoon at the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) NSW Branch AGM. I met the dedicated and enthusiastic committee members and I got to do a presentation alongside the following brilliant authors and illustrators: Susanne Gervay, Sue Whiting, Serena Geddes and Sarah Davis. They were all so great to listen to and Serena and Sarah’s illustrations were so beautiful and cool.  Thank you so much to the CBCA NSW Branch for inviting me to be part of it. Also the cake was delicious.

I received a cup from this event, which makes it 3 cups I have received as gifts for presenting, or helping out … and as anyone knows, once you have at least three of something, you have a collection!!! Bring it on people. I want to be able to drink tea for a month without having to do the dishes.
