The Writers’ Jubilee is returning to the Edward R. Andrew Elementary School in Morrisville, on Saturday, April 9, 2011. The Jubilee is a truly unique experience for children from grade 3 and up as well as adults! Participants can expect to be inspired by attending free, mini, hands-on workshops about various types of writing, artistic techniques and styles, and by meeting and learning from favorite published authors and artists.
Approximately 30 presenters, consisting of authors, illustrators, news reporters, poets, publishers, composers, and more will be on hand to demonstrate their techniques and experiences. The presenters are professionals and the depth, quality, and popularity of this event is unmatched in Central New York.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Matthew McElligott. He is an author and illustrator from Selkirk, N.Y. He is a professor of illustration and graphic design at the Sage College of Albany, and to date has published eight books for children.
Also presenting at the Writers’ Jubilee is news reporter and newly published author, Christie Casciano with The Puck Hog, and her sister, who illustrated the children's book.
Last year over 200 participants from many area school districts enjoyed the event. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Writers’ Jubilee, so come celebrate with us! The event will be from 9:00a.m. - 3:00p.m. at the E.R. Andrews Elementary School in Morrisville, New York.
