When the library organises and hosts events such as author visits and writing workshops, it’s really a whole school event and often planned in conjunction with English staff. It’s important to capture and share the event with students, teachers, parents, and even the community outside the school. This post is a collaboration between Marie (who has written it), Denise and me (photos). No doubt the author, Kirsty Murray, would be interested in the post as a record of her session, and since the event was initiated and supported by Chelsea Hughes and Lily Merry from Stonnington Library, it is important to share this post publicly so that they have access to the post.
A big thankyou to Stonnington Library for giving our students a chance to workshop with the fabulous Kirsty Murray during their Literature Alive Festival.
“The workshop was an awesome experience, Kirsty Murray taught me so many different, new ways to write that I had never considered before. I had a great time and I am sure that everyone else did as well. The workshop has definitely helped me see new ways to create stories and make them more interesting.” Monty
