A few weeks ago, our CBCA Shadow Judging group had a special visit from author Jane Godwin. Jane’s popular book ‘When Rain Turns to Snow’, was shortlisted for CBCA Book of the Year 2021, which made her a great candidate to help our group. She took us through some ways to conduct creative responses for this year’s shortlist, and workshopped some ideas, helping the group wrap our heads around some extra concepts. This has definitely helped, as we are now putting together our responses, and we were so glad to have her there. All of us are very thankful for the time she gave us, and for the wonderful opportunity we were given.
