Word up: creative writing workshop at the State Library of Queensland

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

From April 14 to 16, the State Library of Queensland are running Word up - a three-day creative writing workshop series! It's for young writers aged 15 to 17 and promises to be awesome. According to SLQ's website, the workshop will feature:

  • Access to professional writers and industry professionals
  • Hands-on experience and resources to develop your skills, confidence and abilities across various trans-media writing platforms
  • Tips on how to make it as a writer 
  • A body of work created during the workshop program

  • I'll be giving a workshop as part of the program, which I'm very much looking forward to. Meeting young writers is terrific, and running workshops is the most fun, and the State Library of Queensland always put on awesome events for young people.

    For more details and to register, check out the State Library of Queensland's website. It runs from 9.30am-4.00pm from April 14-16 and costs $100 for the full program. If you're aged 15-17 and can get yourself to the State Library in Brisbane this April, you should register! (You have to register by Monday 16 March, so be quick.) It'll be excellent.

    (How crazy is it that April is NEXT MONTH? And we are in the year 2015? What is going on, time?)
