One Word One Day is a fun initiative of the Australian Society of Authors this year to celebrate and promote our illustrator community. Collaborating with Micador (art materials) and the ABC we will raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation through a series of fabulous hand-on workshops in major cities around Australia.
Each workshop has a single word as its theme. The first one was "Fly".
Melbourne (Wed March 14) theme word, FLY
Perth (Wed 18 April) theme word, NIGHTLY
Brisbane (Fri 11 May)
Hobart (Wed 23 May)
Darwin (Wed 6 June)
Sydney (Wed 20 June)
Listen to Ann James and Alison Lester being interviewed during the Melbourne One Word One Day.
