Oliver Phommavanh: A Thai-riffic! journey

Session Info:

Come join me as I take you along on a journey of writing my Thai-riffic! book. Students will get an insight into two of my main characters, Lengy a Thai kid and Mr Winfree, his crazy English teacher. They’ll discover how much of the book is true. Oliver uses his teacher and stand-up comedian experience to bring out the funny side of writing. Students find out where story ideas come from and how easy it is to write wacky and silly stories. There’s fun and a dash of drama in this interactive and entertaining talk.


The writing process, from the idea to the story. The publishing process, from the story to the book. Writing Humour. Creating funny characters and stories. Celebrating cultural diversity.
