CREATING YOUNG WRITERS IN REMOTE AUSTRALIA

CREATING YOUNG WRITERS IN REMOTE AUSTRALIA

 

Children from five of Australia's remotest communities will participate in this year's Spinifex Writing Camp at Tjuntjuntjara Community, arguably Australia's most remote community located 700 Kilometres east of Kalgoorlie in the Great Victoria Desert, Western Australia.

The aim is to foster and develop talented young writers and create a book – in less than a week. Some of Australia's best known children's authors and illustrators including Ann James, Judy Watson and Gregg Dreise will be on hand, working with ILF's team and teachers from Tjuntjuntjara School, including Principal Charlie Klein, to assist the kids.

The workshops are made possible through the support of a number of partners including Tjuntjuntjara Remote Community School, AngloGold Ashanti, Tjuntjuntjara Rangers and the Spinifex Health Tjuntjuntjara.
