The natural beauty of the Abbotsford Convent grounds will stir the imagination of budding young writers in an interactive program featuring award-winning children’s authors and leading artists. Presented by the Abbotsford Convent and Kids’ Own Publishing, ‘Your Secret Garden’ by the Grand Imaginarium will allow children aged 5 – 12 years old the opportunity to write and publish their own book. One of the authors to guide children on this exploration is Jane Godwin, award-winning author of more than 20 children’s books. We spoke to Jane about her creative process, her most rewarding works and what children can expect from her story writing sessions.
“ The Abbotsford Convent is a contemporary village, I love being here with my family, meeting and making friends with the community. ”
