Gold coin entry

Part of the Write Here! Festival 2019.

The Write Here! Festival is a Writepad program part of a Lake Mac Libraries initiative that will deliver a range of author visits, literacy programs and opportunities for local writers.

Jess Black writes stories for children. She particularly enjoys writing series filled with action, humour and a splash of kindness. Jess’s The Tales of Mr Walker is long-listed in the Australian Book Industry Awards 2019. She wrote the Little Paws series, Keeper of the Crystals series and many more!

Paul Russell has been in classrooms for over thirty years so it isn’t really that surprising that all of his heroes are teachers. He has always been passionate about stories, even before he could read. Determined never to grow up and lose his imagination Paul is passionate about children’s literacy and in building an appetite within children for the written word and sharing stories.

Award-winning author, Kaz Delaney has a 25-year career as an author. Her books for children and teens feature either humour and mystery or both.

Lynn Jenkins is an experienced and practicing clinical psychologist, author and mother of three. Lynn is passionate about early intervention in the social and emotional development of children, and explores this in all her books. Lynn is the author of ‘Ollie’s Treasure‘, Lessons of a LAC, Perfect Petunias, and Grey-glasses-itis.
