Two hot-of-the-press workshops built around each of my two new picture book titles - Hedgehog the Wonder Dog and HEAVY are now open for bookings for schools or other organisations looking for creative incursions or Author Visits in Terms 2 and 3, 2023.
Are you a school teacher looking for an awesomely creative AND educational incursion for Prep – Grade 6?
'Magic & Scribbles' is a 1 hour, highly interactive workshop created by Dannika Patterson and Megan Forward to suit larger groups & full cohorts. We've created a highlight reel of some of the best bits of our other popular workshops and rolled them all into one deliciously creative and inspirational hour.
New ‘People & Place’ Workshop – Beach Kindy!
Come with us to a place where anything is possible. Where swashbuckling sea captains and puddle jumping champions play together. Where spells are cast in the sand. Join author Dannika Patterson on an incursion adventure to the amazing place that is...Beach Kindy!
Sea Stories creative workshops for children encourage participants to enjoy, respect and protect our oceans. Dive into a multi-disciplinary exploration of ocean environments, using books by Dannika Patterson, as reference texts.
In It Together
Publisher. Editor. Author. Illustrator. Agent.
Our jobs are very different. Our primary goal is the same.
Although we are all coming at our roles with a unique collection of priorities, pressures, passions, opportunities, skill sets and whatever other wildcard life is throwing at us at the time, we are all doing the very best we can for what boils down to the very same reason...to make a story we LOVE into a book that will be read.

Creativity is a combination of discipline and a childlike spirit.
