Writing workshops for kids

June 11th, 2016

For those of you in Tasmania, the various Lincs/libraries are running some writing workshops in the July school holidays. These are designed to tie in with the 2016 Young Creative Writers Award, which is run by the Commissioner for Children.

There will be workshops in the North, Northwest, West and South for various age groups. I’ll be running two at Rosny Linc, one for 12-14 year olds and the other 15-17 year olds. We’re still working out dates and times, but I’ll have them by next weekend and will post them then.

Also at Rosny, Julie Hunt is running workshops for 5-8 year olds and 9-11 year olds. There will be various other authors around the state.

    Hi Lian,

    These workshops at Rosny sound fantastic and my daughter Heidi (who is 12) is very interested. She had already decided to enter the Young Creative Writers’ Awards, so this is perfect.

    My son Sam (15) loves the Keepers series, and he may also be interested – I’ll check with him this afternoon when he’s home from school and keep my eyes peeled for dates.

    I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately – I’d love to catch up for another coffee (or champagne) sometime if you’re up for it!

    I hope all is well with you,
