Book Month Event. Teens Face Writers!

Yesterday afternoon approximately 30 students from secondary schools in Dunedin came to the King's High School Library to meet the authors who were on the author panel last Tuesday.  These students were those who feel a passion for writing and who wanted to hone their writing skills.  They were hand picked by their schools and here you can see photos of them really getting stuck into writing and thinking about writing, trying new techniques and at the same time having a lot of fun.

The authors Vanda Symon, Ella West and Kyle Mewburn had their audience fully engaged and working with all manner of new story types and provided valuable feedback to the students on their writing.  Speaking with the students later they said it was hard to pick which writers workshop they had enjoyed the most because each of the authors had such a different style. This was a Book Month event and we thank the authors very much for their time and their generosity in doing this workshop for our students.
