An incredible opportunity to spend a full day accessing some of the best Australian Young Adult authors for potential young authors of the future. Suitable for students in years 10, 11 and 12, these workshops are not HSC or curriculum based but focused on the creative writing process with ample opportunity for students to write during the workshops. The focus is for students to have the opportunity to be immersed in the writing process. The aim is for students to write, under direction, with authors also sharing suggestions about the writing process. It is a chance for students to be creative for creativity’s sake, and to explore the potential for creative writing to assist in numerous vocations and creative fields. The authors conduct 2 workshops during the day, with an hour’s lunch break in between.

Due to popular demand, we are running this event for two days in 2024 to allow for more students to take part. Author names will be released closer to the dates.

Capacity is strictly limited.
