Book Week Incursions: Mark Greenwood storyteller
Our Primary students will also be having a FANTASTIC incursion to celebrate the end of Book Week on Friday 21st August.
Author/story teller Mark Greenwood will be helping them unravel the clues to...
- discover one of the world's greatest lost treasures
- learn the story of Ned Kelly’s most treasured possession
- walk in the footsteps of an ANZAC legend
- meet a legendary bushranger who became the greatest escape artist of the convict era
- sail back in time on an ill-fated Dutch East India ghost ship.
Says Mr Greenwood, "Our past is full of adventures and curious, larger-than-life characters. It is a vibrant and rich vein of material for writers and storytellers."
Mark loves presenting to students of all ages and backgrounds, and aims to inspire them to develop their natural curiosity about books, writing and rhythm. From simple rhymes through to the extensive research required to create historical fiction, Mark’s presentation provides ideas and strategies to enhance students' creative writing.
Through important stories from our past, students get involved in the process of writing from an initial idea and the development of a story line, through to preparing for publication. Mark discusses the origins and inspirations for his books and shows students how their imagination is the catalyst for great writing.
