This workshop, for rangatahi aged 11 to 14, will take young writers through the do's and don't’s of storytelling and why it is so important to get it right.

Attendees will consider other points of view, investigate their characters' stories, and work through a step-by-step guide to awesome, authentic writing.

Please note masks are mandatory for this workshop.
