Monday 28th June Classes: AUD35 SCWC / AUD40 9 – 10:30 Craft A Story (With Pat Simmons) Create your own set of creative story cubes, then shake them up, let them fall and inspire your own story! This is a fun, creative and tangible way to write stories. 10:30 – 12 Wacky Poem Art (with Imogen Ross) Using poems as the creative springboard, young artists are encouraged to use lead pencil, pen and ink, or watercolour pencils, to doodle and make visual word associations. 12:30 – 2:00 Book Re-Engineering (with Imogen Ross) Kids will break all the rules and fold, scrunch, tear and re-work the pages to turn the book into a 3D object that literally has words falling out of it! Tuesday 29th June Classes: AUD40 SCWC / AUD45 10-12 pm: Secret Ingredient, Short Story Soup In this workshop, we’ll look at the ingredients of short stories and how to create a story that’s unique and compelling. And if you want, you can then finish your story and submit it to this year’s Olga Masters Junior Short Story Prize! 12:30 - 2:30 pm: Playing around with words In this workshop, we’ll play with words and storytelling forms in new and experimental ways. You will be invited to write free-verse poetry, unusual perspectives, backwards stories, and anything else we think of.
