The Teen Writers Club is a place for high school aged writers to make new connections, be inspired, and develop their writing. We provide a safe, fun and engaging program for passionate young writers of all interests, ages and abilities.
The Club meets on Saturdays during school term, and is guided by a guest teacher. The program is shaped by the interests of the group, and they’re supported to set and achieve their own writing goals. We provide creative content, information on the industry and careers, mentoring, and the opportunity for support for school-based writing projects. Term 2 in 2023 will be facilitated by Adam Cece.
- Meet and connect with like-minded writerly peers
