Earlier this year a number of students from GCC attended the Voices on the Coast Literature Festival. Each year to celebrate the Festival a book called Small But Loud Voices is published to showcase young writers’ work from across the Sunshine Coast. The anthology is a compilation of poetry, narrative and illustrative works. The book will be published this year and be available for sale at this link.
Please note we have been notified by the producers of this publication that the 2017 anthology is still yet to be published and may be combined with the 2018 entries. Special thanks to families who have patiently waited for this.
See you in the library.
Vanessa McKellar and Beryl Morris, Teacher Librarians
