ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Dr Mira Reisberg is a US-based, award-winning illustrator, author, editor, art director, teacher and former children’s literary agent, who also holds a PhD in Education and Cultural Studies with a focus on Children’s Literature.
She is in Australia as a keynote speaker at the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) conference in Sydney. Cairns Tropical Writers Festival is pleased to engage Dr Reisberg to meet with local children’s authors and illustrators in this half-day workshop in Cairns as her only other appearance in Australia. This is a huge opportunity for many local children’s books creators in the far north who have limited access to hands-on professional development.
