Young Writers

Our unique Young Writers program (formerly Talented Young Writers' Program) is for young avid readers and writers and is unlike anything else in Australia.

Since it started nearly 20 years ago, students in Years 6 to 12 attend full day writing workshops held each term at our Centre in Fremantle, and also in host schools in Bunbury, Busselton, Albany and Geraldton.

This exciting program enhances the writing skills of all who attend and nurtures a new generation of keen readers and writers. They have the opportunity to meet a broad range of Australia's talented, published authors who are skilled in working with students across many year levels..  Find out more below.

Background... Collective and Online

Due to the impact of COVID-19 last year, we delivered our unique and acclaimed writing program differently - online for students via a series of video links! Our presenting authors’ carefully tailored presentations have been pre-recorded either at the Centre (for WA authors) or in their own homes for interstate authors. Students receive a series of writing sessions from one author, each term, tailored to their year level.

Given the launch and success of our Young Writers Online, and that it will continue in tandem with our normal Young Writers Collective face-to-face program, we've found a way to distinguish these activities with colourful branding:
