WIPC:E is over for 2014

It’s 8.50pm on Sunday in Hawai’i, and here I am blogging for the first time in how many days?!?!? I can’t believe it. I had intended to write each day but I’m afraid, each night this week I had either ran out of internet connection, energy or reliable cords, so it just didn’t happen.


Deadly Bloggers at WIPC:E

This week Leesa was proud and humbled to be presenting at the World Indigenous Peoples’ Conference on Education (2014) in Hawai’i. The WIPC:E conference was born in Canada in 1987. Every three years a new host nation takes responsibility for it. Conferences have been held in Aeotearoa, Hilo, Albuquerque, Woollongong, Calgary, Melbourne.


Talking about blogging at #FNAWW

Leesa was invited to present at the First Nations Australia Writers’ Network Workshop event at the State Library of Queensland in May. The event was very inspirational and there was quite a bit of “star-struckness” as the who’s who of Australian Indigenous literature turned out to be there.
