Our Young Writers Holiday Workshop was a blast!
Twenty young writers ranging in ages from 7 right up to 17yrs met together at the gorgeous Black Cat Books & Cafe for a one day writing workshop.
The day included exercises to help even the shyest writer mingle, idea prompts, costumes, good food, laughs and lots and lots of fun. We even finished off with an open mic session where the kids got to read their stories to each other. I cant wait until we get to do the next the one!
Black Cat Books were absolutely amazing, giving us plenty of space, good views, a microphone (for our very professional story reading) and even gave all the attendees a special discount on any books purchased. If you find yourself in the neighbourhood of Paddington (Brisbane), do check out this quirky little bookstore, they have a great range of reads, especially young adult books, and novels by Australian authors.
As promised to our attendees, here are some pics from the day:
