Bring the kids to settle in for Story Time. When you bring a writer passionate about the picture books and the importance of play together with a children's poet, you get an hour of readings that will delight all ages. Join Tracey Dembo and Rebecca M Newman for this very special story session.

Tracey Dembo

Tracey is a Perth-based writer who is passionate about igniting children's imaginations and helping our future leaders to find their own voice. She believes in the importance of play and has a strong interest in children's early learning and development. This perfectly aligns with her love of picture books and the important role they have in that process.

Rebecca M. Newman 

Rebecca writes poetry for children and flash fiction for adults. Her work can be found in Australian and international anthologies, magazines and popping out of the short-story dispenser in Perth’s Raine Square. After contributing to all those anthologies, she thought it was time to edit her own, so she joined forces with Sally Murphy to co-edit Right Way Down and Other Poems. She is the founding editor at Alphabet Soup Books and the primary school judge for the 2023 & 2024 Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards. When she’s not writing you’ll find Rebecca messing about with collage or playing Irish fiddle tunes on an old violin.
