Alex Miles: The Story of a Story

Session Info:

The Story of a Story uses Alex’s new series Starring Olive Black as a framework to share the story of how books travel from concept to the bookshelf. Kids see real examples of idea generation, plotting, editing, illustrations and design and along the way learn how they can apply the principles of patience, perseverance and collaboration to their own writing.

Alex also draws on her experience from writing books in the Zac Power series, as well as her time as a storyliner on Neighbours. She’s flexible and will endeavor to accommodate specific requests, for example, author Q&A at the end of the session.
