TLC News is also a great way to find out more about our Talented Young Writers' Programme, which nurtures a group of young writers, Years 6-12, by offering them full day workshops each term with superb authors, whilst also enabling them to meet and form friendships with other like-minded readers and writers. In Term 2, enrolled students from Perth and in 6 regional WA towns will be working with these exciting authors of Young Adult books: 

Mark Greenwood (WA), Phillip Gwynne (VIC), Michael Gerard Bauer (QLD) and Anthony Eaton (ACT).

Plus, upcoming events!
