Storyline Festival Info

Later this week, authors, (Catherine Mayo, Jill Macgregor, Juliette MacIver and Paula Green), will be talking about themselves and their couriers at the Storyline Festival in Manukau. They will also all be talking to us about literature and most probably giving us lectures about writing and what it takes to become an author.

 Juliette MacIver, author from Wellington, attended the Victoria University and got a diploma for english teaching and completed a degree in linguistics. Her writing courier offloaded after writing her first book ‘Marmaduke Duck and the Marmalade Jam.’ She has written four books and is now a professional author.

Jill MacGregor born in Dunedin has been a VSA teacher in Tonga and is now a School Journal writer. She has had a lot of experience in the pacific island and she has put her experience into her books.

Catherine Mayo, writter and musician has produce many books just like the other authors. She tends to write books suited for young adults/teens.

Paula Green, is a childrens writer and poet. She has written five collections of poet and was awarded the University of Auckland Fellowship in 2005.

 At the Storyline Festival, I will mostly be looking forward to listening to Catherine Mayo. Just because her books and type of writing looks and sounds like my style of writing.
