“Creativity is the fun of putting
together unexpected ideas”

Speaker Topics: Author Visits to Schools and Libraries

As a visiting author, festival speaker or writer–in-residence, Hazel has been invited  to Australian schools, kindergartens and libraries but also to international communities in China, Indonesia, Nepal and America. Hazel shares her research and writing experiences as a way of inspiring young readers and writers.

      

Literacy and literature are combined in talks, including:

  • the process of creating a book
  • collaborating with an illustrator to create the images
  • rewriting and proofreading
  • where ideas come from
  • writing 'what if' stories for fiction
  • writing factual stories
  • writing articles and plays
  • meeting the book characters
  • story reading session
  • embarrassing moments!
