Library For All is creating a collection of 500 mirror books for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children called Our Yarning. Your voice as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person can add to this unique collection. You are invited to write a story to encourage children to love reading.
The workshop will be led by Jessica Wimbus, a Gubbi Gubbi woman from Queensland Australia with extensive experience in Aboriginal education.
In particular, we encourage the registration of Indigenous Liaison Officers from our local Western Sydney schools. This is a free workshop, and an opportunity for the professional development of skills to create stories for children, by community, for community.
You will be supported through the workshop and do not need any creative writing skills or experience. Authors will receive a free copy of their book when published. Library For All provides additional digital access to their entire library of published stories, provided as a resource for schools.
Registration for the workshop is necessary for catering purposes.
When: Wednesday, 24th Jan, 2024 | 9.30am – 1.30pm |
Where: Max Webber Library Function Centre
Level 1, 61 Flushcombe Road, Blacktown 2148
This workshop is hosted in partnership with Library For All, WestWords, and Blacktown City Council
