After-School & Holiday Programs

Our after school online writing workshops are a free online space where young people can write, create and dream big.

All workshops are facilitated by our Story Factory Storytellers and are designed to support writing, development of ideas, and for young people to access support in creating a piece of writing from both professional writers and your fellow students.

We’re running online workshops during term on Monday – Thursday for both primary school and high school students. We also offer holiday workshops options in the September school holidays.
