Centre for Young Writer's Annual Writer's Festival 2017

Our exciting annual Writer’s Festival (hosted by the Centre for Young Writers) for students in Years 7- 10 is fast approaching on the 6th and 7th of September.


Dates:            Wednesday 6th September- Years 9 and 10

                      Thursday 7th September-   Years 7 and 8


The theme of the 2017 Writer’s Festival is, “WRITE FOR CHANGE.”  All students in these year levels will soon choose writing workshops to be involved in that link to this idea.


We have a professional guest speaker and SLAM poet Joel Mc Kerrow who has worked with students before booked for both days.  He will be involved in motivating students in talks and workshops in relation to Writing and Change.


Check out Joel’s work here (trailer YouTube poetry):



We look forward to our innovative festival and seeing students writing towards change.


I welcome any questions, suggestions and feedback.
