The concert, jointly hosted by the two choirs, will also involve primary and intermediate schools from across the region. Auckland Girls Choir musical direc- tor Leonie Lawson says it's the high- light of the year's chorale repertoire and is expected to attract a full house. Each of the children singing at the event is asked to bring a small present to place under the tree, which are then donated to Kidz First at Middlemore Hospital.'' Youth Celebrates Christmas is supported by the Lions Foundation. The concerts starts at 7pm, at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell. Tickets are available at the door from 6.30pm. Jam session with authors inspires kids to write By AMY McGILLIVRAY Speed writing: Otahuhu Intermediate student Koinoinia Alusei listens to advice from author Jennifer Beck at a speed-dating style workshop. Photo: JASON DORDAY Speed-dating with a twist has seen authors and intermediate students from across Auckland spend a day together. The New Zealand Book Council organised six New Zealand authors to take time out from writing to run short speed-dating style workshops with small groups of students. Half-way through the day Robert Keam from Remuera Intermediate was bright-eyed and ready for more. It's pretty interesting. I'm really looking forward to them all.'' The author dating'' left him thinking about the importance of suspense. It's the key to interesting writing,'' he says. Somerville Intermediate's Elaine Ryan enjoyed the session with illus- trator, scriptwriter and oral storyteller Lyn Kriegler. She has puppets and everything. It's nice to know that other people talk to their soft toys as well,'' Elaine says. Fellow Somerville student Kelly Gradon learnt a lot from each author but particularly enjoyed Ms Kriegler's session which focused more on illustration. Lyn said that your imagination can bring things to life.'' Poet Paula Green says the day was about encouraging the kids to get out there and give it a go. I just start with the idea that poetry is like music so we just jam around with words,'' she says. It's just playing around and using their ears.'' Poet Selina Tusitala Marsh and children's writers Jennifer Beck, Brian Falkner and John Parker also dished out their best writing advice. Book council chief executive Noel Murphy says the event is an exten- sion of the Writers in Schools pro- gramme that sees authors visit schools to work with students. We're hoping that they're getting to meet some interesting writers and get good insights into how working writers do it,'' he says.
