WRITING AND DRAWING ELEMENTS INCLUDED IN THIS FUN SESSION.

Sunny Kids Writing Camp - July School Holidays

Making Picture Books Workshop: Superheroes and Fan Fiction.

Choose your favourite superhero, TV or movie character to base your story on. Then plan, write and illustrate a ‘fan fiction’ picture book. Under the guidance of award-winning author and writing tutor, Aleesah Darlison, you’ll also learn about literary techniques like alliteration, onomatopoeia, simile and metaphor so you can build them into your story. Writing and drawing elements are included and all materials are provided for this fun, creative session.

This awesome creative writing camp is run by Aleesah Darlison, award-winning and internationally published children's author. Suits Ages 7 - 14 years.

Date: Wednesday 10 July

Hours: 8:30am - 4:00pm.

Venue: Blooming Health Studio, Level 2, 61 Bulcock Street, Caloundra.


Each day also includes fun games, activities and prize draws.

Children will enjoy a full day writing camp with one of Australia’s best-known children’s authors working in a tutorial/class environment with one-on-one time throughout the day plus instructions and advice on creative writing.

Each time the camp runs, the program differs in terms of topics and genres. This offers variety in material to keep young minds switched on and learning. There are elements of both writing and drawing involved in each program, with plenty of stimulating discussion, group and individual exercises, plus take home materials.

We have designed the camps to allow for longer days so you can get to work early and don’t have to rush back to pick up the kids after only a few hours. The sessions are run by Aleesah Darlison, internationally published, award-winning children’s author. Children remain supervised throughout the day. The camp classes are restricted to thirty students to ensure maximum benefit for each child.
