Event Overview: Join Libby Hathorn, author, poet and educator, direct from the State Library of NSW for this free writing masterclass with a difference.
Libby will showcase items from the Library collection and reveal their connection to much loved Australian poems drawn from her recent compilation 'The ABC Book of Australian Poetry' (ABC Book, 2010). Libby will then lead your students in a step by step process, 'The Hathorn Technique' (see article in Scan, Connected Classroom 2012) to create their own poetry.
This masterclass is a series of two video conferences held one week apart, and offers a wonderful opportunity for students to engage with an expert for deeper enjoyment of the art of poetry as well as developing the skills and techniques to write their own engaging, original poetry. You will need to book separately for the session on 13 March as well as this one.
