There were three firsts related to Brendan’s visit – our first online author for 2019, the first author online presentation using our new Webex platform and the first time we have invited Brendan to present to our students. Thank you to Narelle Carlon from Online Teaching and Learning who facilitated and assisted us in hosting Brendan. Our students and staff were keenly engaged in the sessions and the value to students is indicated by some of the text chat responses below:
- Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us. It really put into perspective how I can develop character in the future for creative writing. Thank you (Dominique).
- I had no idea that flawed characters are easier to connect with (Alex).
- Absolutely amazing, some great tips on how to improve my writing (Aleesha).
- Thanks for your session and teaching us about creative writing and about Dystopian novels (Dixie).
Carousel is a dystopian mystery where 'four young adults find themselves trapped inside Carousel Shopping Centre when the entire population of Perth completely disappears.' It's a strange and engaging story that will have you hooked from the first page.
