KSP Scribe Tribe: A Creative Hub for Tomorrow's Authors
Tribe Leader: Rosanne Dingli. Award-winning Western Australian novelist Rosanne Dingli has authored four novels, six collections of short stories, and a book of collected poems. After working with Australian and international traditional publishers since 1991, Rosanne became a hybrid author after independently releasing her out-of-print books in 2009. Rosanne has gone on to add manuscript assessment, typesetting, formatting, and design services to editing for other authors. She has worked as a teacher, lecturer, workshop coordinator, magazine and corporate editor, travel consultant, cook, manuscript assessor, heraldic artist and business partner. Rosanne is passionate about helping young writers to 'fly', and this is her goal as the 2017 Scribe Tribe Tutor.

More About the Tribe
FYI, this is NOT a school room! These regular recreational groups are for kids who love or want to explore the amazing world of creative writing and publishing without the pressure of grades!
These sessions will help budding young writers to develop their skills and meet like-minded friends their own age. They will find themselves engaging in interactive workshops and lively discussions on everything from books, authors, genres, publishing, self-esteem, turning imagination into inventiveness, the wider world, and, of course, writing technique.
The sessions, guided by an experienced and caring facilitator (who happens to be an awarded and multi-published author herself!), also focus on the work-shopping of individual works-in-progress, where applicable. Everyone is encouraged to engage in readings and friendly critiquing to help one another improve plot lines, dialogue and characters - and in doing this, the students gain confidence in their writing and improve their public speaking and performance skills.
The young writers are also visited by occasional special guest authors who provide unique workshops.
A highlight of this unique youth program is the end-of-year publication of an annual KSP anthology that features the best works from all students throughout the year - and everyone receives a complimentary copy. Young writers are involved in the editing , design and typesetting process and will help to choose a name for the anthology. There is nothing quite like seeing your name in print!
