Byron Writers Festival is on the lookout for published authors and illustrators local to Northern NSW who would be interested in joining the StoryBoard program.

The festival’s biggest program for school aged kids, StoryBoard, is a free workshop that brings authors and illustrators to regional schools, so that children in rural communities are able to receive guidance and inspiration from professionals. 

Next year is going to be another busy year for StoryBoard, visiting over 2500 kids, and the team is looking to expand.

If you are a published author or illustrator of children’s books, who is a Northern Rivers local, and you have some experience in creating and teaching workshops for children, email your expression of interest to [email protected], and you could help the next generation of creatives.
