Find Your Voice: Writing Workshop with Samantha Wheeler
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Where the Wild Things Are
Tickets available until 10 April 2019 11:00 AM
Join Samantha Wheeler for a writing workshop about finding your own voice through writing. Samantha is passionate about encouraging people to speak up for what they believe in.
‘Everyone has a voice, whether or not they communicate in a conventional way and I wanted to convey that message to younger readers,’ said Samantha on Everything I've Never Said.
Samantha Wheeler is best known for her eco-adventure stories but, inspired by her youngest daughter who has Rett syndrome, she thought about writing Everything I've Never Said for many years.
Samantha Wheeler studied agriculture, worked with dairy farmers, and taught science before writing her first children's book in 2011. Five novels later, her stories have been shortlisted for the Queensland Literary Awards, Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year Awards, the Readings Children's Book Prize, the Wilderness Society Environment Award for Children's Literature, and commended in the Royal Zoological Society of NSW Whitley Awards. When not writing, she spends time with her husband, pets and two beautiful daughters, the youngest of whom has Rett syndrome. Samantha hopes her stories will encourage everyone to speak up for what they believe in.
