"I think you have to work to find your own voice and write 'from the heart'," says WV tutor Leigh Hobbs.
Leigh is an artist, author and The Australian Children’s Laureate for 2016/2017. He has written 21 books featuring his characters Old Tom, Mr Chicken, Fiona the Pig, The FREAKS in 4F, Mr Badger and Horrible Harriet. Adapted for television and the stage here and overseas, Leigh’s family of somewhat subversive characters have now a life of their own.
Leigh is running a one-day workshop on Creating Kids Books in Words and Pictures at Writers Victoria in April 2017.
