Young Writers Development Program
If you’re a keen writer aged 8-14 StoryLab will stretch your imagination and help you understand writing as a craft; giving you tips on perfecting your style, editing your work and improving the flow of your story.
Our program offers support, motivation and guidance from award winning author, Deb Fitzpatrick, as well as your fellow writers within the group.
