Williamstown Literary Festival May 1-3

Williamstown will be buzzing with writers from all over Melbourne. This festival is the biggest in the west. There will be a mix of forums, workshops, performances and awards. 
* Sun 1.15 - WRITERS AND PROMOTION. Claire Saxby will host a  discussion with children's authors, Corinne Fenton and Glenda Millard. Its not easy crawling out from behind the writing desk and actively promoting your work. 

* 3.45  BEFORE THERE WERE BOOKS, THERE WERE STORIES.  Talking about oral traditions. Covering nursery rhymes to traditional folk and fairy tales to the task of writing new stories in language for speaking rather than reading. If you are curious about how this traveling storyteller thinks - come along and join me.

Children's Book Council of Australia says PL is of note!

Phar Lap the wonder horse has been listed as an Eva Pownall notable book by the CBCA. Text by moi, illustrated by Patricia Mullins and published by Museum Victoria - we are delighted. Nothing more to add - smiles and more smiles.

Pirate Funday

Too much colour is never enough! Terry and Jen and mystery pirate ( he looks friendly). Working as roving performers at the Pirate Funday - raising money for the kids at Mekala House orphanage in Cambodia. An exhausting but successful day.
