Writers in the Environment Camp

Brewongle Environmental Education Centre conducts a unique program titled ‘Writers in the Environment’ camp. Students participate in writing workshops conducted by guest authors or writers and teachers. The students’ stories are published and participating students and their schools will receive a complimentary copy of the published book. 

Camp objectives are:

  • to engage talented and motivated students in workshops run by popular children’s authors
  • to enable experimentation with a variety of genres and enhancement of students’ writing skills e.g. characterisation, planning, setting the scene, writing a plot and different story endings
  • to immerse students within the beauty and serenity of the natural bush environment in order to stimulate inspiration to create new ideas

Students will have the opportunity to work with experienced literacy teachers and renowned children’s authors such as:

  • Simon French, our writer in residence
  • Susanne Gervay
  • Oliver Phommavanh
  • Lisa Shanahan.
