Pigeons in the Post

Pigeon Letters is an in-school letter writing exchange linking school students with Australian authors. Run over two school terms, the project facilitates a creative collaboration between the author and student, resulting in a piece of writing such as a short story, poem or comic. The final pieces are published in a professionally printed and bound book.

The Younger Sun is very pleased to be selling this marvellous book. There are 21 fantastic short stories

The authors involved this year are Kirsty Murray, Sally Rippin, Meredith Costain, Michael Pryor, Paul Collins, Gabrielle Wang, Andrew McDonald, Jen Storer, Michael Hyde, Martine Murray, Jackie Kerin, Robert Greenberg, Claire Saxby, Tony Wilson, Bernard Caleo, Mirranda Burton, Alison Lloyd, Jen Breach, George Ivanoff, Stephanie Brotchie and Sherryl Clark. Wow!

Not to mention 21 fantastic emerging authors from Footscray City Primary School. Yeah!
