Steven Herrick is the author of twenty-four books for children and young adults. His books have twice won the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and have been shortlisted for the CBCA Book of the Year Awards on eight occasions.
 
Widely recognised as a pioneer of the verse-novel genre for young adults, he writes poetry and verse novels for children, teenagers and adults.
 
Steven spends nine months of the year visiting schools and festivals in Australia and three months on his bicycle pedalling slowly and thinking about his next book.
 
This is a unique opportunity for students to appreciate the sound and humour of modern poetry as Steven’s experience and skill as a poet and performer will effectively break down any uncertainties students have about understanding or enjoying poetry. All students will quickly recognise this poetry as being accessible, entertaining, and above all, relevant to their lives.
