Join Juliette MacIver on the September Digital Story Tour

Join Juliette MacIver on Tuesday 20 September 2022 for this free event

At 11.00am Juliette presents for Years 1-3:  My years as picture book author and how I write stories plus ukulele, singing and story reading!

At 1.30pm Juliette talks to Years 4-6 on: My life as a picture book author, and a helpful breakdown of how to craft ideas into stories. And story reading!

A very popular visitor to schools, Juliette MacIver brings energy, humour and boundless enthusiasm to her presentations, artfully weaving in lessons on story structure and useful ideas for sparking and developing stories. She has also done many workshops with children, focusing on elements of story in general, or specialising in the art of rhythm and rhyme. She has honed these skills through visiting schools all over New Zealand over the past 11 years, and in Sydney for two weeks in August every year (pre-Covid) as part of Australia Book Week celebrations. Her love of children comes through in her ability to connect with her audience, encouraging their creativity and their faith in themselves as people with ideas and something to say.

You can even ask Juliette questions during the live Q&A.
