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.
Term 1 dates: 10:30am to midday - Jan 29, Feb 5, 12, 19, 26, Mar 5, 12, 19
The Club meets on Saturdays during school term, and is guided by Writers SA staff, mentors and 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 workshops, information on the industry and careers, mentoring, and the opportunity for support for school-based writing projects.
We're kicking off 2022 with Rebekah Little at the helm!
