Venue:
Meet in front foyer of State Library of Victoria
Main entry, Swanston St

In this four-day school holiday program, young writers can take inspiration from the rich history, culture and stories found in the Love and Devotion exhibition. Each day participants will explore manuscripts and images in the exhibition as a stimulus to improve their use of character, dialogue and setting in their writing.

This is a unique opportunity to focus on writing for a week with Leanne Hall, author of This is Shyness (Winner 2010 Text Prize, CBCA Notable 2011). Young writers will hone their skills, experiment with style and subject matter, and meet writing and publishing professionals (Tye Cattanach, Marketing Manager for Penguin; Alison Arnold, editor; Tony Palmer, book designer and author; and Michael Webster, RMIT).

The program runs 10am–1pm each day.

Morning tea will be provided.

Places are limited, so book early.
