Book Links is proud to present the StoryArts Festival Brisbane. The festival will be held at the State Library on the 19-20 October, 2019.
The two day conference for writers, illustrators, teachers and librarians promotes excellence in children’s literature.
Previously, the festival has been held in conjunction with the StoryArts Festival Ipswich. This year, the festival has been moved to the more central location of Brisbane.
Primary and Middle Years teachers will gain an insight into the stories behind some of our best book creators with ties to how literature supports aspects of the Australian Curriculum.
The festival aims to offer quality, affordable workshops and master classes and the opportunity to obtain feedback on pitches, manuscripts and portfolios. There will be key panel sessions with editors, agents, authors and illustrators and focused sessions with book creators.
This program is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
