Students Represent at T'Bay Writers Festival

A group of fifteen students from Edge Hill State School were fortunate to attend the annual T Bay Writer's Festival on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 August 2016.
These students were nominated by their teachers and supported to attend the event by our own Writing Collaborator, Mrs Jennifer Angus.
Trinity Bay State High School conducts the festival annually, recruiting acclaimed authors to attend and present workshops to students from throughout the region. Students from Years 6-12 travel to the event from as far away as Mareeba.
This year, four childrens writers/ illustrators presented at the festival - Deborah Abelah, James Roy, Nicole Hayes and Michael Camilleri.
The workshops were informative with many great story writing tips offered as well as useful ideas for the creation of picture books and graphic novels. 
Activities such as these are wonderful opportunities for our students and enhance classroom learning. We are confident our representative group of budding authors enjoyed the experience, gained new perspectives and some bright ideas for future works of great fiction.
