A Littlescribe Partner

Our small K-6 school has thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this year's Mini-Writing Festival.

It was great to see even our most reluctant writers participating with enthusiasm and creating some fantastic pieces of work!
Kara Fisher
Girilambone Public School, NSW
Littlescribe provided an amazingly affordable, inspiring and exciting experience, which was absolutely appreciated by a community which has recently been deeply affected by bushfires, economic hardship and Covid.

The quality of authors was excellent and the students were glued to the continual work of the illustrators. The lessons were engaging. Our School turned the whole week into a Writer's Festival. Can't wait for next year!
Jenny Hearnes
St Mary’s Primary School, Bairnsdale VIC
The Littlescribe Festival took our children to the next level with their writing.

There were so many ideas for both students and teachers to be upskilled in their writing. A fantastic experience!
