Royce Bond is an award-winning teacher and author. He loves to create different worlds in his stories where the reader is invited to join in the adventures.
He has conducted writing and creative workshops and teacher in-service throughout Central Queensland, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
His workshops and talks for students are about planning and building a fantasy world; descriptive writing within a story; and how to enthuse children to write.
His workshops for teachers are about using drama to create insight into narrative writing; creating a writing atmosphere in a classroom using the internet and unusual props; creation of individual student magazines; motivational storytelling, even up to grade 12; and the use of questioning skills to develop deep thinking skills (based on Royce's books).
