Inklings get write advice from author
ARMADALE wordsmiths were treated to a visit from a multi-award winning author.
Children’s author Norman Jorgensen has published 12 titles for young people, and he paid a visit to the Inklings Writers Workshop at Armadale Library.
Inklings organiser Gemma Sidney said one of the workshop’s members had been talking to Jorgensen at another function and he was eager to visit the group.
“He spoke of the trials and tribulations of being a writer, bookshop owner and publisher and gave great advice on honing our skills,” she said.
“Norman mentioned during the session that when he was growing up, all the kids’ stories were set in England and other faraway places. It’s what inspired him to set his stories right here in WA.”
Inklings has been running at Armadale Library since March and all are welcome.
Sessions cost $5 per person and are held every second Thursday evening.
