Event Details

 

This program runs each year, twice a year, for ten weeks. It has been designed for students from years 9 to 12 at high school, who are keen writers and passionate about developing their writing further. They are students keen to develop and hone their writing skills, rather than the students who are enrolled by their parents and are not keen themselves to develop their writing. 

Admission is selective. A writing piece must be submitted prior to enrolment. The writer must be passionate about their writing. (Note: Litlinks winners are exempt from this selection process.)

This course will take place in an atmosphere where all participants write in a community, which inspires the members to write to the best of their ability.

Through lectures (podcasts), videos (vodcasts), guest speakers, writing exercises and assignments, the students embark on a journey of discovery learning. Their passion for writing, already ignited, increases as they reach new milestones in their writing prowess.

Writing is critiqued by the instructor, as well as by their peers, and towards the end of the course, the students are guided through a piece of writing made ready for publication.

For each student who completes the course, they will finish with a writing assignment - a piece of writing, ready for pre-publication. (i.e. A rough draft to polish.)

Some students' work may even be selected to be included in a published book at the end of the course. Many have gone on to be published later. All students who want to be taught about the world of writing/publishing, will go on to complete the Advanced Course - where they will be given advice about the potential of their writing and what the next step may be for each individual writer.

The course covers major elements in the writing process and progressive feedback is given throughout the program. The course covers ten weeks of concentrated instruction, writing exercises and assignments. The students not only learn from the instruction, but also from each other.

Students have found this course invaluable in the past and many forged strong writing relationships with other students who became their mutual-mentors and writing buddies.

Some are now well on their way to being/or already are published authors!

Canberra Writing School (www.canberrawritingschool.com.au)

The Canberra Writing School (CWS) is based in Canberra, the cultural capital of Australia.  The school is administered by www.aussiewriters.com.au. (Note:The legal entity is Kirrily King Publishing.)

We offer a variety of online courses for adults and students, both recreational and career oriented courses, which we have developed over the years.

The CWS was originally established in 2002, and originally offered writing courses to students at senior high school and pre-tertiary levels locally, with its very popular English Preparation courses but has since expanded its offerings.

In 2011 a variety of writing related courses were offered, and the first online courses were launched. These courses are suitable for those who are interested in writing, as either a recreactional pursuit, for education purposes or professionally. The emphasis is on developing writers today and writers for the future.

The courses offered here, mostly fill the gap between rigorous academic courses offered in formal educational settings, and the very casual recreational courses you might find in community colleges.

Our courses are shorter, more condensed, conveniently offered online (for busy people) and (from time to time) offline, and perhaps suiting those who do not seek formal qualifications at this point in time, but instead wish to hone their writing skills.

Our courses are highly creative, unique, interactive, substantial in rigour and comprehensive in their content. (They are not just a series of videos or webinars like other flimsier courses you may come across.)

In short, our aim is to create raving fans and returning students (and we DO get a lot of them) - so you will not only learn a lot through our courses, but you will enjoy the experience!
