Students Enjoy Young Writers' Day

Youth Literature and Young Writers Days are some of the busiest on our Library calendar and Term 1 was no exception. Students from schools around Bunbury brought the wider community into our Library to work alongside author Phillip Gwynne on their writing. Here are what some of the students in attendance thought of their day with Phillip!

I had a lot of fun writing under the guidance of Phillip. He was funny and engaging which made it very easy to learn from him and he gave excellent advice when we shared our work. :: Caleb, Bunbury Catholic College

Philip Gwynne was a funny, humorous and inspirational author and I will definitely be using some of his techniques in my writing. Phillip was incredibly honest and open about his writing and how it relates back to his life. I enjoyed the whole experience and am hoping to use the ideas and tips from the day in more of my writing. :: Georgina, Bunbury Senior High School
