Look what I found yesterday! Very excited to unpack book box yesterday and discover my new picture book, illustrated by Janine Dawson and published by Five Mile Press. Officially published 1 October. Think Jingle Bells in the Australian countryside.
Last week I visited Dee White’s blog for a bit of a chat about picture books. Fun it was. Thanks Dee 🙂
Attendees ranged from newcomers to well-published Australian creators. While mostly Victorians, we also welcomed two Tasmanians.
The first day program was designed to offer stimulus via workshops on poetry and illustration, emotion and form.
Morning and afternoon tea, lunch and dinner breaks nourished not only body, but provided the opportunity to renew and extend friendships, meet new people and share stories.
Pitfalls can be avoided by sharing knowledge. The second day featured presentations by publishers and editors sharing experience and opportunities.
