2013 Brisbane Writers Festival

This week 25 lucky Year 8 students attended the Brisbane Writers Festival where they were fortunate enough to listen to Matthew Reilly speak, and then have their books signed by him  He spoke about The Hero’s Journey, and used lots of examples from movies and books to illustrate variations on this theme.

The boys also enjoyed listening to Scott Westerfeld, who spoke about why he chose to illustrate his incredibly popular steampunk series, Leviathan, Behemoth and Goliath. This series is set in the early 1900s, before the days of cameras, when novels and newspapers were all illustrated, so it seemed a logical extension to illustrate these books.
