Discover your own voices writing style at this Teen Writing Bootcamp with writer, performer and activist Nevo Zisin.
Own voices writing opens the door to let marginalised groups tell their stories. But it also gives children the opportunity to see themselves within the stories they are reading and know that the writer behind the words is similar to them.
Join Nevo to learn how to tell your story and write with authenticity, vulnerability and self-love on a journey to find your voice.
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.
State Library Victoria Cultural, Family & Student members get early access to our upcoming events. To get your tickets ahead of the crowd, become a member today.
This program has been made possible with the generosity of Serp Hills Foundation and The JTM Foundation.
