Connect with 1.5 billion children: Countdown to the Asian Festival of Children’s Content

Want to connect with 1.5 billion children?

Need to discover new markets for your writing and producing?

Want to learn more about what’s going on in Asia in terms of creating content for children?

Think you could benefit from building a network of creatives from across the globe?

Or just want to make a difference in the world through your work?

Erm…all of the above.

Singapore Writers Festival Words Go Round 2013

Me and the awesome kids from Bukit View as part of Words Go Round 2013.

Whee! Thanks to the amazing WritingWA, I’m going to the 2014 Asian Festival of Children’s Content, to do all this AND soak up some of Singapore’s fabulous food and entertainment.

I’m presenting and participating, and in my usual style, I’ll be attending absolutely everything I can, squeezing the most out of every opportunity until my eyes are bloodshot and all I want to do is write, write, write.

I ADORE Singapore. I was there last year for the Words Go Round festival, and everything was amazing. Everyone was so welcoming and encouraging and helpful and I said I’d go back in a flash.

Well, FLASH!
And HOORAY!
And THANK YOU to everyone involved in making the AFCC great.

I seriously cannot wait!

Catch me (and so much more) at the AFCC 2014, Singapore

I’m presenting Whatever Happened to Non-fiction, on non-fiction for children. It’ll be a fab, fun session, followed by Mark Greenwood presenting Breathing Life into History, and I’m telling you, he does it well! Looking forward to it!

I’m also co-presenting a session on scary stories for children, with Canada’s Mahtab Narsimhan. Mahtab’s TARA trilogy draws inspiration from Indian mythology and is maybe a million times scarier than TAKESHITA DEMONS. I’m scared just writing about it! I can’t wait to meet her and present our session: Are YOU afraid of the dark?

See you there!
