Leave a comment

I’ve been working with Deakin University as the 2023 Children’s Writer-in-Residence and it has been INCREDIBLE! I feel so lucky to have had time and space and money to support me while I work on a new and very special project. I had the most fabulous time in Warrnambool and met so many inspiring people.

Now my time is nearly at an end, and I’m excited to be doing a mini-tour of Victoria to run a series of writing-related events for kids, adults, writers and people who want to have a General Good Time 😎😁👍

Events are free, and you can register below. Bring your questions and let’s chat all things writing, publishing, science, creativity and fun!
