It is almost time for Australia's annual literacy education conference which is to be held in Melbourne. I fly down tomorrow ready to face the cold weather ;) I am really looking forward to the program and presentations. I have also been working on a few papers that I hope to submit to journals this month. They mainly focus on multimodality and how different perspectives are presented through each of the modes. I have really been enjoying writing this work.
And in even more exciting news - all of my books are currently in production including: Developing literacy and the arts in schools; Compassion and empathy in educational contexts (edited with Prof Susanne Garvis); and Arts-based research, resilience and wellbeing across the lifespan (co-edited with Loraine McKay who is the lead, Vivana Sappa and Susanne Garvis). We are all really excited to share this work with you. I hope you are all having a great school holiday break too!
