On Wednesday 30 August, a group of Lit Club students used public transport to travel to Federation Square, in order to attend the Melbourne Writers Festival. The first session entitled Hack in a Box was all about creativity. The speaker, Ms Amantha Imber, inspired us to think outside the box and ignore assumptions when seeking inspiration. She also talked to us about Hack in a Box, a programme that encourages students working in teams to try and solve real world issues.
Ms Diem Nguyen and Ms Danielle Binks were the guest speakers for our second session, which proved to be very entertaining and informative. They offered many great tips and insights on how they share their passion for Australian young adult literature, through technologies such as social media, blogs and podcasts.
