Do you have big dreams of writing a novel, penning a poem or publishing your own zine?

Or do you have something to say, but you're not quite sure how to get it out into the world?

This is your chance to meet and learn from some of Australia’s most exciting and inspiring storytellers in a free school holiday writing program for 12- to 15-year-olds.

Over three days you'll explore story, poetry and performance, building your creative skills and finding out how to turn your passion into a career.

Zines with Emma Jensen
Love writing, drawing or crafting? Making a zine is the perfect way to create a masterpiece using everyday materials. DIY your own zine on a topic of your choice.

Spoken word with Emilie Zoey Baker
Get inspired to write poetry for performing live. You’ll workshop your poems, learn techniques to bring them to life on stage and have the opportunity to speak your truth into the mic.

Fiction writing with Michael Pryor
This is nothing like your English classes. You’ll be led through writing exercises by a published author, crafting a compelling story. Explore different methods of storytelling and develop your own unique voice.

Two Story Camps will run in January:
