Do you have a story in you? Does it scratch at your brain in the dark of night, begging to be let out? We can help you set your imagination free!

Townsville Writers & Publishers Centre, with support from James Cook University and Townsville City Council, are running a 3-day workshop for writers aged 13-18 years old*. 

You’ll learn techniques to get the words down, develop the story, and polish it off, so it’s ready for all your adoring fans to get lost in. Once that’s done and dusted, the world can savour it as you bask in your very own glory.

Presenters include local authors Chris Cummings and Chris Picone, and Brisbane editor Belinda Pollard.

*Maps, permission forms and other details of what to bring will be emailed after payment. Numbers are limited to 20 participants.
