Sydney Writers’ Festival invites high school teachers and their students to join us forSecondary School Days in 2009.

This is your very own festival of young adult literature, featuring a handpicked line-up of writers for secondary 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.

Secondary School Days showcases the very best local talent in young adult writing, with Isobelle Carmody, Garth Nix, Randa Abdel-Fattah and James Roy. 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.
