Our thirteenth year of high-quality creative writing education

The Writing Workshop has been educating and inspiring young people since May 2006. We've worked and written with over 80,000 participants from five years old to school-leavers, and read over half a million pieces of imaginative writing. Our participants have won major competitions, been awarded selective school places and scholarships, written (and published) books, participated in our peer leader programs, achieved personal writing goals, found new confidence in their ideas, writing and presentation skills, invented worlds, brought characters to life (on the page!), asked incredible questions, stretched their imaginations, and had a lot of fun.

We teach teachers too – The Writing Workshop is accredited by NESA to run a range of professional development workshops in the creative writing area.

"At the beginning of the term kids always wants to do lots of out-of-school activities – however, this is the only one which independently motivates her every week."  Year 2 Parent
