Jane Godwin: Author Talk: Early Primary

Session Info:

A fun and interactive session where Jane shares several of her many picture books with the children. Jane shares the stories then talks about how each story came about, encouraging the students to share their own ideas and explore similar techniques when they write stories. Jane also takes the children through the process of making a picture book, from initial idea, rough drafts, storyboarding and rough illustration, through to final illustrations and printing. This session can also include a drawing/story start activity with the children. Teachers can also request for Jane to focus on a particular book if the children have been exploring that one in the classroom.

Topics covered:
  • Finding inspiration for a story
  • The picture book process
  • Drawing or story writing activity
