Summer Holiday Writing CampsIn January, Write Away With Me launches our new 2014 program – Holiday Writing Camps. We’re kicking off with two single, full day programs. On the 20th January, our Seniors (10 – 13 years) will get busy creating A Writer’s Notebook to use throughout the year. Then on 21st January, Juniors (7 – 9 years) – you’ll have the chance to Choose Your Own Adventure and write an action packed story. It’s a great opportunity for young wordsmiths to spend a day playing with words, chasing ideas and swimming around in their imaginations – not to mention, learning new skills and working alongside like minded peers. Click on the links above to read the program outlines/learning goals and discover just what you can expect from the day! Our Summer Holiday Writing Camps will take place at Kilvington Grammar School in Ormond. Kilvington Grammar School will provide the perfect backdrop for inspired writing/workshopping and is easily accessible via public transport/major freeways. So if you have (or know) a child who loves writing, a Summer Writing Camp may just be the perfect way to spend a day! All materials are provided, so all you have to do, is pack your lunch (and your creativity), and get ready to be inspired!
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.Ray Bradbury
