LitFest2444 – a storytelling festival for high school students – is responding to the COVID-19 crisis and moving some of its proposed 2020 program online. Any student or teacher can access the FREE Workshops weekly on Facebook’s Watch Party, starting Monday 11th 7.00pm – 9.00pm.
#LitFest2444 is effectively a festival of story in different forms and mediums, and the organisers are thrilled to be able to support not only the would-be participants on the Mid North Coast NSW, but indeed anyone wanting to access the program.
There are a mix of sessions including renowned and celebrated YA authors Hayley Lawrence, Eleni Hale, Holden Sheppard, MJ Hearle and Cristy Burne amongst others.
Jess O’Callaghan from Audiocraft will be presenting about podcasting, whilst we also have ClickView workshopping animation, and other inspirations for writing and creativity.
