Dianne Wolfer has always loved animal stories. She explored this passion via doctoral research into anthropomorphism in Australian children’s literature. As part of this study, Dianne wrote two award-winning titles; ‘The Shark Caller’ and ‘The Dog With Seven Names’. Both books are Children’s Book Council of Australia Notables with the latter winning the Speech Pathology Award, shortlisted for the NSW Premier’s Awards and now published in Chinese. The former is contracted for film.

In this interactive session, Dianne will share practical tips about writing from diverse animal viewpoints. If you love Animal Farm, Call of the Wild, The Art of Racing in the Rain, Black Beauty or Pig the Pug, this workshop is for you. Come along and find out more about writing in this genre.
