Australia's Youngest Self-Published Authors

Huge thanks to the Canberra Weekly for featuring a wonderful story on my Writer in Residence programme wwith Caroline Chisholm School Junior Campus, Canberra.

The course took 42 children aged between 6 and 12 through the entire book writing process, from creative conception through to publication and launch. The books were modelled on my own book - Riley and the Sleeping Dragon - featuring black & white photos of Caroline Chisholm School as well as gorgeous, brightly-coloured drawings by the children.

It was a proud moment watching those kids come and collect their very first print-run, in front of friends, family and peers.

Well done, kids! Australia's youngest self-published authors.
