Hello Everyone! It's been a long while since we have had a blog post but we are back to announce the recent launch of Trevelyan Quest Edwards' travel memoir, co-written with his mother Hazel Edwards. It just goes to show that the mother and son who read together, can write together! Read Hazel Edwards' article on what it means to co-write with your son here. As a four year old Trevelyan was the inspiration for Hazel Edwards' children's book There’s a Hippo on our Roof Eating Cake. He is a Darwin-based life-saver and former cartographer and trekked the Appalachian Trail of 2184 miles (!!!) northwards from Atlanta, Georgia to Mt Katahdin in Maine (U.S.A.) wearing out two pairs of shoes along the way! Trail Magic is published by Brolga Publishing and distributed by Panmacmillan, for more information click here.
Hello Everyone! So our blog has been somewhat lacking for quite some time! And by lacking we mean non-existent. Well there is a lot happening in Dublin at the moment with Children's Literature and writing in general! We launched our author and illustrator interviews on this website. The interviews are extremely interesting, helpful and inspiring especially for aspiring authors and illustrators of children's literature. Speaking of inspring: Writers Web TV is officially launching this Saturday 28th September with its first creative writing workshop! Super exciting stuff! The first workshop 'Writing for Children and Young Adults' will run on Saturday, September 28th 10am-4.30pm (London time) with picture book authors & illustrators Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick and Michael Emberley; Emmy award winning director Norton Virgien of Brown Bag Films, and Literary Agent Polly Nolan. They will be joined by international bestselling YA authors Meg Rosoff and Oisín McGann, all giving their sage advice and talking the viewers through the colourful world of children’s and YA fiction. The Looking Glass will be watching this intently! Sign up now on their website :)
