Do you love writing?

Did you know that CHYA offer writing opportunities for local youth? We partnered with Express Media and Writers Victoria to bring a line-up of some of Victoria’s best writers to Courthouse Youth Arts for Tracks: Geelong on Saturday April 29, 2017.

This was a great day of events for young writers featuring masterclasses and workshops with:-

Maria Takolander, Jenny Valentish, Candy Bowers (Black Honey Company), and Khalid Warsame (National Young Writers’ Festival & The Lifted Brow), as well as panels and presentations with Lucy Adams (Voiceworks), Amanda Sherring (Forte Magazine), Maryanne Vagg (Word for Word Non-fiction Festival: Geelong), Claire Capel-Stanley (Writers Victoria), Fiona Dunne (Express Media) and more.

Plus, we were able to present young writers in a special showcase event!

We would love to hear from local young people interested in writing activities and opportunities.  Let us know what you would like to get involved in here
