If Incursions are a preference for your school, please contact us about our Literature Workshops using Travelling Picture Book Exhibitions.  We have over 25 Australia picture books, suitable for all year levels, which can be displayed and workshopped by our TLC Education Officers in schools (or libraries).   

In Term 1, 2018 we kick off another exciting year of our engaging Talented Young Writers' Programme.  Unique in a Australia, this programme nurtures a group of young writers, Years 6-12, by offering them full day workshops four times a year with a different Australian author, whilst also enabling them to meet and form friendships with other like-minded readers and writers. In Term 1, enrolled students from Perth and 4 regional WA towns will be working with these exciting authors of Young Adult books: Barry Jonsberg (NT), Mark Greenwood (WA), James Moloney (QLD) and AJ (Amanda) Betts (WA)

Enrolled students in 2018 have the opportunity to work with many award-winning YA Australian Authors, depending on the year level of the students and their location in WA.  As above, click through to the TYWP section of this website for all details.
