The Scribblers Festival story began the way most authors first approach a blank page: with a flurry of ideas, a solid theme, a beautiful setting, and a very long to-do list.
As we began to search for partners (or co-authors as we like to think of them) to help us navigate this uncharted literary landscape, we knew we needed people and organisations who could think outside of the box.
To the Town of Claremont, thank you for having the vision to imagine the impossible becoming possible, and helping us pen the story every step of the way. And to our venue partners Scotch College and Claremont Lawn Tennis Club, thank you for opening your doors so that students and children from far beyond Claremont's borders can join us celebrating in the magic of storytelling. You have all set the stage for a truly wonderful story to develop.
Last but not least, to the rest of our co-authors, educators, librarians, and parents who have enthusiastically supported Scribblers from day one: we owe you our endless thanks for helping bring to life the wonder that only a good story can, and making the Scribblers Festival one that we hope the Western Australian community will enjoy for years—and chapters—to come.
Thank you to everyone who donated to our crowdfunding campaign to help send 10 under-resourced schools to next year’s Schools Program:
