Although arguably better known for There’s A Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake, Hazel Edwards rates f2m: the boy within as one of her most important works. Co-written with Ryan Kennedy, a man she’s known since he presented as a nine year old girl, Hazel knows a thing or two about collaborative writing, and has graciously agreed to run a very special workshop on non-boring collaborative writing.

If you are currently planning a collaborative work, Hazel suggests coming along together to get the most out of this workshop.

About the Presenter:
An avid reader (who read under the bedclothes and in the bath), as a young girl, Hazel Edwards wrote her first novel in grade six, a mystery about adventurous children stuck in a mine. This passion for writing and character development continued and after working as a secondary school teacher, at twenty-seven, Hazel published her first novel, ‘General Store’, a book based on life in a rural town.

Since then Hazel has written critically acclaimed childrens and young adult fiction, was awarded the Australian Antarctic Division Arts Fellowship in 2001, and in 2013 was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for services to literature.
