Our Writer’s Club is a fabulous way for students to develop their creative writing skills in a safe, supportive and social environment. Every Thursday at recess and lunchtime, students can come into the library and get assistance with their writing whether it be a short story, Great Australian novel, or poetic work. They also have access to a private online forum to share their work, access writing exercises and find helpful tips.
We encourage and support our students to enter the following writing competitions:
John Marsden Writing Competition
The 2018 John Marsden & Hachette Australia Prize for Young Writers will be open for submissions in April 2018. Open to Australian secondary school students across the nation, the prize recognises excellence in three creative writing categories: fiction, nonfiction (true stories told in a clever and inspiring way) and poetry.
