We recently had an email from a family wanting to know about creative writing classes/workshops for kids in Perth. WritingWA have published a list of classes on offer for Young Writers in Perth — the list includes classes running in term-time and in the school holidays.
Visit the WritingWA site and check out the list for a class near you.
If you can’t get to a class, you might like a website called Writing Classes for Kids that offers downloadable lessons.
