Imagine being at a camp in the Great Victorian Desert in Western Australia with two of Australia's best-loved author/illustrators and working with them to produce your very own illustrated story.

Ten lucky kids had just such an opportunity. In June 2015, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation brought together Sally Morgan and Ann James, and kids from Tjuntjuntjara, Mt Margaret, Menzies and Melbourne for a 5-day writing and illustrating camp on Spinifex Country.
