TALENTED YOUNG WRITERS PROGRAMME - Each term, over 1600 students from the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA have the opportunity to meet and work with a different Australian author.  Enrolment is for students from Years 6 to 12, either booked via their school or attending as a private student.  They experience a full day of workshops, 4 times per year.  This unique programme is an excellent opportunity for keen readers and writers to enhance their skills and rekindle or awaken confidence in their writing.  Workshops are held in Fremantle, Bunbury, Busselton, Albany and Geraldton.

Enrolments for 2019 are now open!  Find out more at our Talented Young Writers' Programme section of this website.
