Thankyou Jane Taylor from the Children’s Book Council Australia who organised in partnership with the Australian National Maritime Museum, a fantastic creative writing experience.
Authors Anthony Eaton and Jaclyn Moriaty, RandomHouse publisher Linsay Knight and I had the best day at Darling Harbour. The master class was packed with a waiting list, as teens from all over Sydney came to share creativity.
Highlight was climbing on board Captain Cook’s ship – the Endeavour – and seeing the cabins of Botanist Joseph Banks, artists (who died on the journey), surgeon …. Captain Cook. The cramped conditions, but the huge sails on the desks. Loved it.
Loved it all.
