Bendigo Writer's Festival

BSE Students Inspired by the Writers Festival at the Captial Theatre 

Students from Bendigo South East attended the Bendigo Writers Festival, to listen to Jackie French, talk about  inspirational ideas and fantastic books.  She talked about her motivation behind her writing and the passion that allowed her creativity to flow.

Jackie was really interested in history and past events such as World War 11.  She spoke about her 'wombat smudge', who gave her the inspiration to write her book, 'The Diary of a Wombat'.

Once she finished answering the audiences questions, we found out more about her and her writing ideas.  

Overall, it was a great opportunity to have such a successful writer share her experiences with us.
