The Story Camp program, held during the school holidays, provides teens (aged 12–15) the opportunity to nurture their creativity, engage with creative mentors, and build networks with their peers. This program is targeted at teens from outer metro areas of Melbourne and/or socially disadvantaged.
During the three-day workshop, Story Campers:
- explore story, poetry and performance under the guidance of some of Australia's finest authors and poets
- participate in hands-on workshops to build creative skills and confidence
- find out what a career as a professional writer really looks like.
Participants have engaged in workshops on slam poetry, fiction writing, zine making, non-fiction and more.
