LDB AT PWF

You’re going to be at the Perth Writers Festival, surely.

Well, I am, and if you’re in the right place at the right time, you’ll get to see me blether in front of a mostly-live audience! Here’s my itinerary:

Schools Day
Thursday 18 February
11:15am-12pm
World Building
with Deb Fitzpatrick (chair) and Carole Wilkinson
Romeo Tent

Carole Wilkinson and Lee Battersby know how to bring the extraordinary to life. In this session these two unique storytellers discuss how they combine elements of magic and fantasy to create their characters and worlds.

Friday 19 February
2:45pm-3:45pm
Writing Matters
with AJ Betts (chair), Andy Griffiths and Carole Wilkinson
Ross Lecture Theatre

In this panel discussion, authors talk about the art and craft of writing, firing up the imagination, supporting emerging writers and working to create a writing culture in the classroom

Sunday 21 February
9am-9:40am
Magrit
Tropical Garden

Magrit lives in an abandoned cemetery with her friend and advisor, Master Puppet, whom she built from bones and bits of graveyard junk. She is as forgotten as the tiny graveyard world that surrounds her. Join Lee Battersby as he shares his wondrous new tale about a girl, a graveyard, and an unexpected guest (ages 9-12)

We’ll also be building our own skeleton out of random objects collected from around the house, including cricket stumps, a pogo stick, a basketball, and any other mad falderal I can find in the next few days, so you know you want to be a part of that!

For those of you who aren’t yet unfamiliar with my upcoming book:
a) Where the hell have you been? Do you even read this blog? and
b) HERE! THE BOOK IS HERE! RIGHT HERE. WALKER BOOKS! HERE!

Other than these sessions, I’ll be wandering the grounds with a stupid grin and loud Lego shirt, so make sure you say hi, grab a snap or two with me, and help to exploderate my Instagram account with stupid selfies.

BRING. IT. AWWWWWWNNNNNNN!
