Danielle Binks is a must see for senior students. She is passionate about Youth literature, specifically Australian Youth Literature. Danielle is a not only an award-winning writer, but is a book blogger, editor, a literary agent, and a youth literature advocate.

Danielle was a driving force behind the #LoveOzYA campaign. This movement aims to increase the prevalence and profile of Australian authors: a movement to start the conversation about our love of Australian youth literature and champion our stories.

Danielle edited and contributed to the book Begin, End, Begin: A #LoveOzYA Anthology, by some of Australia’s favourite YA authors. Her creative writing has featured in Voiceworks and Yen Magazine, and she has been a columnist for Kill Your Darlings, writing on Children's and Young Adult literature topics. Danielle has been called a “fine new voice in Australian Literature.”

Danielle’s aim is for Australian teens to see themselves reflected on the book shelves and on the page. She hopes for our teens to grow into adults who seek out Aussie stories and support local authors. She believes youth literature should be about equality, inclusivity and diversity.

Sessions - Danielle’s engaging and informative sessions promote #LoveOzYA and “Read Local”, celebrating our national youth literature. Danielle is fantastic at sharing her vast literary knowledge and offering insight into the industry-side of writing and publishing. Danielle is an advocate for encouraging our teens to embrace reading, wherever it may come from. Grades 8-12
