NT Writers’ Festival are offering two workshops for children on Sunday 21 May, with author of Too Many Cheeky Dogs and Go Home Cheeky Animals!, Johanna Bell.

Workshops are for two age groups: 4-7 yr olds (to be accompanied by an adult) at 9.30am-10.30am and 11.30-12.30am8-12 yr olds.

Children create their own cheeky characters and  learn about the tricks that writers use for creating characters. Once they have their character, they can have fun imagining the places they’ll go and the mischief they’ll get up to.

Johanna Bell has created two picture books with Tennant Creek artist Dion Beasley. In 2016, Johanna won the Northern Territory Literary Award for best short story and was runner-up in Overland magazine’s national short fiction competition. She is currently working on a collection of inter-linked short stories, a fiction for 9-12 year olds and a picture book about grief. Johanna is also Creative Director of the sellout live storytelling event SPUN: True Stories Told in the Territory.

NT Writers’ Festival runs 18-21 May. Full program (including workshops for young people) can be seen at ntwriters.com.au
