Writing Non-fiction Texts: Fluency, Craft and Life-long Success
Presented by Linda Hoyt
Thursday 19 March, 3:45pm-5:45pm at Tattersall's Park Function Centre

Writing that has been constructed for craft as well as content sizzles with powerful verbs, enticing imagery, and diverse sentence structures. Anchored in explicit teacher modelling, the goal is to showcase how a competent writer reports facts while never forgetting that the goal is to captivate the reader.

Linda Hoyt is a highly respected US education consultant and the author of twenty-four powerful professional books and six video programs. Linda's energetic presentation style and highly practical strategies have made her one of the most requested literacy speakers in the United States.
