Newington Literary Festival


Big shout out to the organisers of the Newington Literary Festival. Thanks for including me this year – it was a privilege to be there. Especial thanks to Ann Jagger, Sabine Tanase, Wendy Hardy and Sebastian! And, as ever, thanks to the students for listening, creating, and bringing good energy … and I must give a standalone shout out to the grade sevens for sharing their own scary stories … and to Charlie the Educator (aka Charlie Thomson) for sharing his thoughts on creativity, parenting and music …

That’s a lot of thanking – what a nice way to come back online after a break. 

Here’s a snap of Randa Abdel-Fattah, human dynamo, and me at the festival.
