“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” Somerset Maugham

As a teacher, you want your students to learn from the best. This fact means that creative writing students will have access to professional writers, in the classroom. But that’s not always possible — more often than not, the responsibility falls on you to facilitate, encourage, inspire and support your students in order to get the best out of them and the writing they produce. It’s exhausting, and sometimes it’s a mystery. Creating is different from deconstructing and analysing.

In these workshops, experienced writers and writing teachers will guide you and your teaching staff through the processes they have personally used to perfect their craft, and offer you tips, shortcuts and resources to give you the confidence to teach writing like a writer.

Some of the authors and creators with whom we have worked in the past include Melina Marchetta, AJ Betts, Jacqueline Harvey, Tim Harris, Deborah Abela, Fiona Wright, James Knight, Chloe Higgins, David Malouf and Isobelle Carmody.
