Many Write Links members flocked to the Story Arts Festival this year.
The line-up of children's authors, illustrators, book designers and experts was amazing. This festival has the best presenters, most relaxed atmosphere and, most importantly, in between the valuable sessions time to mingle and network. I know several Write Links members took advantage of pitching sessions with The School Magazine, Cengage (educational market) and Karen Tayleur from Five Mile Press.
Festival organiser and founder Jenny Stubbs and her team of volunteers have created an outstanding event.
I loved volunteering during the school program together with the fabulous Tyrion Perkins, taking photos, tweeting and writing and posting blog posts on the SAFI website.
During the adult program many of our members contributed blog posts on their experiences during the festival. You can check out their stories on the Story Arts festival blog here:
Write Links members who contributed to the blog are: Alison Stegert, Katrin Dreiling, Rachelle Sadler, Jacqui Halpin, Rebecca Sheraton, Tyrion Perkins, Dimity Powell, Peter Taylor, Melanie Hill, Tanya Hempson and Yvonne Mes.
