CHILDREN’S ( WRITER ) POWER!

As a developing thriller writer, I was stupidly sceptical when I heard that the West Coast Writer’s Circle SA of Cape Town was hosting children’s author Wendy Maartens this morning.

Speaking brilliantly in English ( her home language is Afrikaans ) she revealed that a writer is a writer is a creative person.

She spoke about the child ( untouched creative source ) in all of us; and also discussed the view that stories are finished articles, waiting for the patient writter to retrieve them.

BRILLIANT STUFF!
