Course has the write stuff

STUDENTS across the Gympie region are beginning to get excited for this year's Creative Writing Excellence Program.

Beginning on July 18, the weekly course will run on Wednesdays from 4-5.30pm and will continue for eight weeks.

During this year's creative writing program, students will have be able to enhance their own writing ability by going through range of learning activities which will show in the writing of their short story.

This annual course, established and supported by the University of the Sunshine Coast, is led by published author and lecturer, Maria Arena. In previous years, the program has had enthusiastic feedback.

"I did this program last year and loved it," Year 8 participant Laura Roberts said.

"I learnt so much and put this into my writing. I can't wait for this year's course."

Year 8 student Mikaela Hourigan said: "the creative writing program helps put my ideas into words".

The cost is $90, and students would be awarded a graduation certificate and copy of the bound short stories on completion of the program.

Spaces were still available so if you or your child were interested in enrolling, collect a flyer from the James Nash office or speak to Catherine Tindale on 5480 6314.

Enrolments close on Friday, June 22.
