Event Overview: The NSW Premier's Reading Challenge Dymocks Children's Charites are pleased to present author Claire Zorn.
Claire will discuss how she develops mood through setting, pacing and word choice, and use a range of images to talk about creating atmosphere in a story. She will explain strategies to convey how a character is feeling without just ‘telling’ the reader. Claire will discuss her two books on the Premier’s Reading Challenge booklists: The protected and The sky so heavy.
