About this Event

The Younger Young Writers’ Program is for creatives who are passionate about writing. The YYWP runs separately from the main festival, with sessions and workshops directly catered to teenagers.

ALL SESSIONS ARE FREE. We ask you to register so we manage capacity.

The Younger Young Writers’ Program is for teenagers who want to improve their writing and learn more about the journey to publication.

PROGRAM

10.30am: All About Screenwriting

For creatives interested in writing for TV. How do you become a screenwriter and what do you need to know about the process?

11.45am: Writing Fiction

What makes a good novel and what is the process of publication? YA authors Holden Sheppard, Jenna Guillaume and Alison Evans will discuss their writing and their careers with Kali Myers.

12:45pm: BREAK

1.30pm: Writing about Pop Culture

These creatives will discuss writing for pop culture. Whether you’re interested in music, TV shows, movies, celebrities or more, learn how to turn that passion into publishable work.

How do you write humour? Writers Nina Oyama, Claire Sullivan and Cassandra Whittem will discuss with Elyce Phillips all about writing comedy and how you can as well.

BECOME A YYWP SUPPORTER

If you love our event or our festival, we encourage to help support our festival by becoming an NYWF YYWP supporter. The "ticket" doesn't get you into anything extra, it's a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of our festival: which is 100% free to attend!

As a not-for-profit arts organisation who runs a 100% free event, we rely on the generosity of funding partners, sponsors and supporters. You can support our festival with a supporter ticket. As an NYWF supporter you'll help us fund our festival, and the Younger Young Writers' Program, this year and for years to come! Fun fact: Did you that it costs us $2.00 for every minute an artist presents at the festival?
