Creative Writing for Young People with Erin Gough
In this online workshop for young people aged 12-16 years, award-winning Young Adult author Erin Gough takes us into the craft of storytelling. We will investigate the elements of a good story, including setting, conflict, plot and theme, with a particular focus on how to develop well-rounded and compelling characters. Participants will then have the opportunity to craft their own stories, either individually or in groups, and to receive feedback on their work.
Erin Gough’s award-winning fiction has been published globally. She is the author of two books for young adults: The Flywheel, which won the Ampersand Prize, and Amelia Westlake, winner of the Readings Young Adult Book Prize and the NSW Premier’s Prize for Young Adult Fiction. Erin’s short fiction has appeared in places including The Griffith Review, Kindred, and Best Australian Stories.
