Explore the truth through creative non-fiction writing at this Teen Writing Bootcamp with critic, researcher and editor Leah Jing McIntosh.
Learn how to construct your ideas, research and opinions into engaging creative non-fiction writing - that’s also compelling to read.
The Teen Writing Bootcamp program provides budding teen writers with the opportunity to gain expert advice from great writers and tackle diverse writing styles and genres.
The program engages teens in writing, literature, and publishing with the aim of inspiring, encouraging, and improving literary skills.
All boot camps are open to teens aged 13 to 18 years old from all around Australia. They are free to attend, but require consent from a parent or guardian. Participation in this program will include sharing work created during the program.
Please note: to register for this event you must be available for all four sessions.
