Somerset Writing Festival

2016 03 15 writing festival 001Mr Travis McLaren and Mrs Alison Zylstra were privileged to take a number of our budding authors to the Somerset Writing Festival. The excursion included a surrealism writing workshop with Leanne Hall, author of This is Shyness and Queen of the Night, and a performance from the Australian slam poet Luka Lesson. Students greatly enjoyed learning about the writing process. They were inspired with great ideas, perused bookstalls and soaked up the exciting festival vibe.

“Luka’s confidence whilst performing made everything all the more entertaining and gave me a new appreciation for poetry. All in all, the day was amazing. The multitude of books that we were able to get, along with the presentations from the authors, made it a worthwhile experience and one I’d definitely do again”. Olivia (Year 10)
