The Young Writers Program at the South Coast Writers Centre is a thriving program that has been running since 2014. Led by Victorian Premier’s Award-winning author Helena Fox, the Program offers creative writing workshops for young people aged 11-25. The program is built on active, workshop-based learning and practice, with the aim to be both a class and community, where young writers can develop their craft and create work they are proud of, all in a relaxed, inclusive, and supportive space.
