Students hear from writers

Festival session entertains

On Friday, August 11 a number of students from Bendigo South East College attended student sessions at the Bendigo Writers Festival. 

Some Year 9 English students, with Mrs Smith and Mr McIntosh, were lucky enough to hear Wil Kostakis, a writer of Young Adult fiction, speak about his experiences writing his novels at The Capital Theatre. His session was extremely engaging and very funny, with many students looking forward to reading his novel 'The First Third' for novel study. 

After a quick break for lunch students then attended a play at Ulumbarra Theatre based on Shaun Tan's picture storybook 'The Arrival'. It was an interesting interpretation of the picture story book which is about migrating from one place to another and is told without any speech as the book does not have text.
