A Way With Words Young Writers Camp

Do you enjoy writing? Do you write in your spare time? Nothing to do in the school holidays? If so, you could join a small group of likeminded young people at this exciting week of workshops to be held in the Library at Bethany Lutheran Primary School, Raceview.

Over four jam-packed days, Monday 26th June – Thursday 29th June, you will be immersed in the joy of writing with popular, international author Brian Falkner.

Places are extremely limited. We are looking for committed and passionate young writers, with preferential places assigned to young writers from the Ipswich region or IDTL Network schools or returning young writers from our previous camps who all pay discounted rates. 

Interested? Book online here 

What the fee covers:

  • Four days of workshops with our author
  • One copy of a book of collected stories published around November inclduing all our costs to publish the book
  • Illustration for one story
  • Invitation to the book launch

Terms and conditions:

The full price for Brian's workshops is $260, or $195 early bird rate if booked before 20 June.

However if you are an applicant from the Ipswich Region or from an Ipswich District Teacher-Librarian Network school or a returning attendee from our previous camps then the price will be just $150, as the IDTL Network will subsidise your placement in the workshop.
