Sydney Writers’ Festival invites primary teachers and their students to join us forPrimary School Days. This is your very own festival of children’s literature, featuring a handpicked line-up of writers for primary schools.
Teachers, this is a fantastic opportunity for your students to engage with, and be inspired by, their favourite authors in a fun, educational and interactive day.
The line up features some of Australia’s best-loved authors for children, Morris Gleitzman, Tristan Bancks, Danny Katz, Mitch Vane and Catherine Bateson, as well as the UK’s “Queen of Tween”, Cathy Cassidy.
The writers will talk about their craft, read from their work and take questions from the audience. Students also have the chance to meet the writers and have their books signed. Books by participating writers will be available for purchase at the Gleebooks Festival bookshop at the venue.
