WSU's Young Writers' Day 2016
Each year, talented young writers hone their skills in the company of like-minded peers at Young Writers' Day (YWD). Year 10 and 11 students from Greater Western Sydney schools gather to hear a keynote address from a prominent author, with the opportunity for Q&A. They then take part in two workshops each, with a wide choice of topics across different genres and aspects of writing. All the workshops are run by published authors, including many award-winners.
As part of an on-going praetorship with the Western Sydney University, Red Room Company poets and writers will co-deliver special writing workshops which engage students in innovative ways, resulting in unique and deeply personal writing outcomes.
The writers include:
