Learn to write stories
like a published author
With a published author!

The internationally acclaimed writing course for middle-grade students that shows you how to write stories the way authors do.

On a four-day, school holiday writing camp, a professional author will take you on a journey of fun and discovery, learning how to create, develop and write awesome stories, guiding you every step of the way.

The course has been developed by international award winning author and writing coach Brian Falkner and proven for over a decade in classrooms in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
