Castlemaine children's literature festival

Come up to beautiful Castlemaine during the October holidays and be part of their children's literature festival. Martine Murray, Simmone Howell and I will be speaking on a panel on writing for children. Here are the details:

So you Want to Write for Kids …
September 26th
Castlemaine Word Mine: Anglican Church Hall, 8 Mostyn St Castlemaine

Stimulating and fascinating panel discussion with Sally Rippin and Martine Murray focusing on writing and illustrating books for children, chaired by Young Adult author Simmone Howell. Your questions welcome, plus a chance to win a framed Shaun Tan print and author signed books in the raffle.


  1. I am very disappointed to have missed this night. I really wanted to go but sick kiddies among other things meant it was not to be. I hope you have more of these events in the future. I'm sure it will be a brilliant and inspiring night.
    Cheers Tracey

  2. Thanks Tracey, we had lots of fun and there was a good turn out. Sorry you couldn't come. I'm sure there will be other occasions in the future.
