Young Writers Online offers a modern and dynamic platform for students (Year 6-12) to learn from award-winning Australian YA authors, develop their writing skills and discover a wide range of genres. This flexible program offers pre-recorded sessions suitable for the classroom or at-home learning in metropolitan, regional or remote Australia.

Participants are exposed to strategies used by authors and presented with creative writing exercises in 20 or 30 minute video sessions, tailored to specific year levels. Through blended learning, students will gain tips for generating, organising, and editing their ideas, as well as insights and stories from the authors about their writing life. These practical and fun videos are suitable for all students and will be particularly enjoyed by aspiring authors, journalists, editors, publishers, filmmakers, and content creators.

The cost is $30 per student, per semester which entitles participants to two authors sessions from our Author Library. Once registration is complete, students are sent a Copyright Form and a document with links to the password-protected Vimeo recordings.

If you have any questions please email or contact the Centre by phone (08) 9430 6869.
