VOICES ON THE COAST-volunteering

Wow.. I  have spent the last two days working as a volunteer for the 13th VOICES ON THE COAST- a youth literature festival held at USC. I had a great time…tired but a fantastic time.  I feel privileged to have been part of such a dynamic festival and to have the opportunity to hear such enthusiastic speakers.  I met and spoke with authors of the caliber of Leigh Hobbs, Christine Bongers, Dean Jacobs, James Phelan, Brian Faulkner, and many others. It was fantastic to see primary school children as well as Seniors interact and engage with these Australian authors.  I am also grateful to USC for the opportunity to be involved in events of this type.  We have some truly  wonderful and talented writers  for Children and YoungAdults in this country.
