Festival fatigue has well and truly taken root. Its been a great week of Children’s Book Festival events all over the country. I was lucky enough to get to Monaghan, Newbridge, Naas and Blanchardstown. There is lots happening next week as well so don’t forget to check out the event guide for things in your area. You can read more about projects in action on the festival blog and via The Write Stuff
Festival means no time for proper blog post – but in the meantime here’s some lovely link stuff-
Bookwitch meets Meg Rosoff – Two of my favourite writers in one place!
A piece of Sendak (the art not the person!) would make me very very very happy but in the meantime I’ve tracked down this great poster. This will make me a little bit happy.
innocent smoothies have a writing competition at the moment – worth a look
The Writers Centre have some relevant events and course – look our for halloween storytelling and Siobhán Parkinson’s writing course
