On Wednesday, 8th May a very enthusiastic group of Year 8 and 9 students spent the day working with Gold Coast based author, Brian Falkner. Brian has published several books for Young Adults including Brainjack, The Tomorrow Code and his latest release, Recon Team Angel. Brian presented an engaging and challenging series of workshops to extend the creative writing skills of our budding authors.
Twenty nine students and four Junior English teachers were entertained by Brian’s humorous anecdotes and challenged to put his writing advice into practice with an extended writing session. All participants enjoyed a full day of working to create a well-crafted narrative using the tips and techniques provided by Brian. A delicious morning tea and lunch ensured that everyone had enough energy to compose some really exciting stories.
Thanks must go to the Cairns Business Liaison Association for their generous sponsorship of this educational initiative each year.
