Word Up at the State Library of Queensland: A three day creative writing workshop for young writers!

Monday, March 7, 2016

I'll again be part of Word Up at the State Library of Queensland this year! It's on from April 5 to 7 (9am till 4pm each day), for writers aged 15 to 17, and it only costs $100.

It's an awesome opportunity for young writers, and I'm super excited to be delivering workshops on a couple of the days. (I took part last year, too, and it was heaps of fun.)

Applications close March 14, so get to applying!

Here are the details:
Three jam-packed days of fun, collaborative and informal creative writing, where you can meet 20 other like-minded young people and extend yourself and your writing. Sound good? Then Word up is for you! 

Led by a team of professional writers, this transformative workshop is designed to develop your skills, confidence and ability in creative writing while exploring themes of cultural identity, a sense of belonging, and community.

  • be available for the full period of the workshop series from 5 to 7 April, 9am–4pm each day
