I Open the Door... | Author: Children of Spinifex Writing Camp
I Open the Door...contains nine interconnected stories, all of which begin and end with opening a door. The young author/illustrators at the 2016 Spinifex Writing Camp were encouraged to let their imaginations run wild, and the result is a book that will simply take your breath away.
Prepare to be intrigued, surprised, fearful and delighted as you turn the pages to follow the adventures of what happens when a door is opened. The Indigenous Literacy Foundation's motto of 'Reading Opens Doors' became the inspiration for the stories that were written at the 2016 Spinifex Writing Camp held once again at Tjuntjuntjara, this year with mentors Ann James, Gregg Dreise and Judy Watson.
The authors featured in this book who participate in the camp include: Jamal from Laverton; Shakira and Lori from Menzies; Daisy, Georgina and Jonas from Mt Margaret; Tarlisha and Adelle from Tjuntjuntjara; and Jemima and Emma from Fairbank Grammar School in Melbourne.
