Calling all creative teen writers for regional thinktank

A novel idea to create a thinktank for teenage writers has become reality in the Isaac region.

A novel idea to create a thinktank for teenage writers has become reality in the Isaac region.
Isaac’s Young Writers’ Group is an online forum to connect aspiring authors aged between 13 and 18 years of age to collaborate, be empowered and share their writing dreams.
Acting Mayor Kelly Vea Vea said Isaac Regional Council has a strong belief in the creative power of our local youth.
“Council is hosting weekly online meet ups to discuss, share and explore how teenagers can extend their passion for writing into the future,” Cr Vea Vea said.
“Feel empowered to share your interest in writing with others across the region and learn how to turn your passion for writing into a potential career.”
Running from 27 October 2020 to 17 November 2020, there will be activities to participate in, weekly challenges, information on opportunities to extend your skills, and a special guest speaker, author Ellen Madden, who will talk about her own personal journey from novice writer to published author. 
The Isaac Young Writers’ Group – a free initiative - is being launched in conjunction with National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). For more information or to sign-up online head to speakup.isaac.qld.gov.au
