Conversations with Writers

 DSC01313

St Mary’s Writer’s Group join a VC through the VLN with other schools and writers Owen Marshall & Sue Orr to discuss ‘Short Story Writing’.

Thanks to Ken Pullar from OtagoNet & his collaborations with the Book Council to bring us regular conversations with a range of NZ authors. They are really great opportunities for our students to tap into a wealth of knowledge & experience. These students spent almost as much time after the VC, together with their teacher discussing the conversation itself. It was very thought provoking for all involved.

Next week’s VC will a discussion about “Encouraging an Individual Approach to Writing” with writers Jennifer Beck, Brian Falkner, and Fleur Beale. Contact Ken to find out more or register your participation.
