Event description
A free creative writing workshop for young people held monthly at Queensland Writers Centre.

About this event

About the workshop:

Youth Writing Saturdays is a free creative writing workshop for young people held monthly at Queensland Writers Centre. Whether the young writers are self-publishing savants or eager bookworms, Youth Writing Saturdays provides a space where they can find their tribe.

Working with a practical approach, the input from students shapes the curriculum, topics, and writing exercises from month to month. Two tutors facilitate the workshop and offer support by listening to ideas, reading work, and helping edit pieces for submission opportunities. We’re all about working towards goals, publishing opportunities, allowing for writing time and free discussion at every workshop.

— Connor and Sebastian

For parents and caretakers:

During the workshop there are no parents allowed in the workshop room. Feel free to use the State Library Facilities, have a read, grab a coffee at the State Library Café or GOMA Café, go for a walk or nap in your car. Whatever suits you. We will be supervising the students from 10-11:30.
