Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

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.

Tuesdays, 4pm-6pm for 9 weeks
Starting 2 February 2021 (Week 2, Term 1)

In the YWG workshops, students will respond to writing prompts every week, read out their work and give each other feedback. There will be a focus on developing the craft of writing, learning new ideas and techniques, and exploring all kinds of writing in a fun and supportive way.

THE SENIOR YWG (ages 14-18)
Thursdays, 4pm-6pm for 9 weeks
