Writer and artist Z.R. Southcombe (Zee) loves to share her passion with others – especially young creators – and we love her inspirational and educational books for youngsters who want to develop their creative ideas.
I am a Writer, a collaborative project with seven kiwi authors, encourages, motivates, and gives practical ideas for young writers to explore creative writing and cultivate their unique voice. I am an Artist, which Zee worked on with six kiwi artists, likewise provides practical ideas and encouragement for young artists to find and nurture their unique artistic identity.
Both these fantastic books are available now on Felt, along with an inspiring range of Zee’s other creative projects.
