I am so looking forward to heading south this week for Great Southern Grammar’s annual literature festival, Southern Sea of Words.
I’ve included some details in this post but for more, check out http://ap.ptly.com/wa/gsg/ocd.aspx?action=showReunion&ReunionName=GSGLitfestSouthernSeaofWords
I can’t wait to meet students living where The Amazing Spencer Gray is set, as well as visit some of my very favourite places in WA’s south. Hopefully I won’t get lost in the Stirling Ranges as I did on a bushwalk there many moons ago. I might tell the GSG students about it when I visit … but I’ll swear them to secrecy. Maybe I should take some marshmallows to help them keep their promise …
