We’ve spent a little time researching, consulting and learning more about writing for this manuscript.
This is one of the project steps we always put in grant applications. We want to make sure there is space and time for developing a project. It means we have to talk to our editor, Shel Sweeney from A Worded Life, our agent Alex Adsett about the ideas. Carl talks to Elders or people in community. We ask our author friends for ideas or advice.
We think about things that are funny to our middle reader or YA audiences. We investigate the literary devices that are used to create humour texts.
So that’s where we have been with our Create NSW project so far.
