The journey for our Year 8 published authors began in Term 2 when they attended the Writing Workshops run by Creative Write-it. Now in their fourth year of running these workshops, Amy Han and Vicki Renner guide the students through the process of generating ideas, developing plot and characters and polishing stories. This year an extra challenge was limiting all writing to 1000 words, resulting in a sophisticated publication of Tintern Stories Volume 3. Thanks to our dedicated Library staff, the books were presented to our students during an inaugural Book Launch, which included an address from Vicki Renner, Amy Han and Mr Fry, as well as light refreshments. Congratulations to all involved in what has been a most valuable learning opportunity.
