This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a writers course with Judith Rossell. It was held at the magnificent Abbottsford Convent in Abbottsford near Collingwood, Melbourne. The venue was so peaceful and inspirational. We had a class of sixteen people of all stages of our writing journey. Judith or Jude as she calls herself was a fabulous tutor and teacher. She was positive, encouraging, kind and very unassuming for someone who is so successful as an author and illustrator. I enjoyed it immensely and learned a lot indeed.
