Video and audio podcasts with children's book authors and illustrators are available from the Reading Rockets website. The podcast page is at: http://www.readingrockets.org/podcasts/authors
I am downloading Katherine Paterson and Jon Scieszka right now with the Juice podcast receiver.
I conducted another workshop on the ALIA/ASLA Standards in Western Sydney this afternoon. The 30 plus participants from DET schools in the Penrith, Mount Druitt and Blue Mountains areas worked enthusiastically to record ways in which they could demonstrate their achievement of the standards.

From the ISLMA Conference
We were lucky to have author John Larkin conduct workshops for our Years 7-10 students over three days last week. John was an excellent facilitator. Our students enjoyed the workshops and the English staff were impressed. I can highly recommend John as a Writer in Residence.
