Wrapping up this year's residencies

We've wrapped up the residencies for 2013.  

Huge thanks to the three wonderful writers and illustrators--James Roy, Trent Denham, and Deborah Abela!  

And to Copyright Agency for funding the program!  

And to the School of Arts, New England Regional Art Museum, Children's Book Council (Armidale Branch), New England Writers Centre, and the Public Library, and the children, teachers, academics, writers, illustrators, librarians and filmmakers who came along to events, met our residents, shared ideas, were inspired, inspiring and productive.  

We hope next year will be even bigger and better!
