What It’s Like to Be A Writer

Public Speaking: Short and Sweet
Emily is excited to be speaking at Scotch Oakburn College in May on the subject of public speaking. We’ll discuss how to control your space, engage your audience, use your voice and body to emphasize your message and how to use props to their best advantage – it’s going to be an action-packed afternoon!
Story Time and Song Time
Every month, Emily runs the weekly Story Time sessions at her local branch of the State Library. These sessions are a perfect way for busy parents to expose their children to essential language and pre-reading in a fun, engaging environment. Sessions like this are frequently run free of charge at community centres so make sure to ask your child health professional and local families. Show children the joy of language and reading by coming along, singing along and listening to some great, interactive stories!
Here are some images from a recent Story Time. Enjoy!
Emily presented the National Simultaneous StoryTime event at Westbury Library in May, 2016. The kindergarten class of Westbury Primary School was present along with several parents. The kids wore some awesome hats! We explored all sorts of hats and the professions that wear them. We read four stories on hats, including some of my favourites, The Magic Hat by Mem Fox and Rosie’s Hat by Julia Donaldson. And of course, we did some cool craft, including a pirate hat and a uniquely Australian crown, with a brim to keep us safe from the sunlight!

Emily spoke at a meeting of Library Technicians in Launceston, Tasmania on 22nd March 2016. She presented an information seminar on Vaccinations (you can get a sneak peak of part of her presentation by looking at the SlideShares here).
“At a time when vaccinations are a hot topic, our library group was privileged to hear a well-researched discussion of the myths and facts, presented in a measured delivery, accompanied by Power Point, by Emily Morgan. She was able to answer questions–some of which I’m sure many of us already had in our minds, in addition to some we might not have previously considered–by simply presenting the data in a clear and intelligible way. We look forward to another opportunity to hear her speak.” – Martha McQueen, library technician.
In 2015, Emily delivered a two hour workshop to a Prep/One class at Hagley Farm Primary School. The subject was “Kodomo no Hi” (Children’s Day), a national Japanese holiday. We discussed language, writing, counting and traditional dress. We played number games, learned how to address th
e teacher and parents, Japanese style, sang a nursery rhyme, did some simple origami and played a Japanese children’s game. Emily will be reprising this workshop in 2016.
“Interesting, age-appropriate activities and a friendly and engaging manner. The children were motivated by the activities on offer and continued to play the games and practise the words after Emily had left.” – Nancy Morgan, teacher.
