Writing workshops with professional writers for free
In what has to be one of the top free events of the school holidays is The Writers' Tribe - Workshops for Young Writers being held by the City of Unley to celebrate National Youth Week 2013.
It doesn't matter if you want to write sci-fi fantasy, graphic novels, short stories, poetry, zines or plays, here is an opportunity for young writers to further develop and sharpen their writing skills.
The Writers' Tribe has grown out of the need of young people wanting professional development and opportunities to continue to improve their literary skills in a variety of genres. A group of young writers were consulted on what they would like as a writers' workshop and their ideas and input really helped shape this assortment of writing workshops.
Just imagine a day of literary workshops conducted by highly acclaimed professional writers of various genres and experience. Young writers will have the opportunity to work with internationally acclaimed writers such as David M Cornish, author of Monster Blood Tattoo and Nicki Bloom, nationally recognised playwright of The Sun and Other Stars.
Nicki Bloom - Winner of the Patrick White Playwrights' Award.
The choice is yours; you can attend one workshop or all of the workshops. Places are limited to 20 per workshop. There are no boundaries, so young people can attend from other areas.
Where: Unley Town Hall When: Saturday, 13 April, First workshop commences 10.00am Registration: Free on the day, or phone: 8372 5111.
