2020 Young Territory Author Awards Free Workshop (primary age)
The Young Territory Author Awards is an annual writing competition where entrants write and produce their own book. The Awards aim to inspire children and young people in the NT to explore their ideas and turn them into stories. The competition is open to all Territorians 18 years and under, and is organised in association with other public libraries and schools throughout the Northern Territory. The competition is in its 30th year of production and showcases the incredible imagination and creativity of young people in the community, providing them with an opportunity to develop their writing skills and have their work nationally recognised. You can find out more about the awards here.
This free workshop run by the NTWC will take place via Zoom video link and is aimed at primary school age children (click here for our workshop for secondary school students). Local teacher and writer Lyndal Carberry will take budding young authors through the basic elements of storytelling and help them develop their ideas into a finished product, and whether they enter the Young Author Awards or not, this is a great skill for the future!
