WestWords Writing Workshops

Do you have a story to tell? Do you love writing? Do you feel excited when you think about putting words down, and having them really mean something? Does the idea of seeing your name at the top of a page of great writing full of terrific ideas thrill you? Would you like to be able to write better, and to learn from the best?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, then you’re in luck, because WestWords and WestLit Libraries, as part of the 2022 Living Stories Western Sydney Writing Prize, are offering 3 free 90-minute creative writing workshops in the Southern Highlands. These workshops are intended to help writers gain confidence and skills in their creative writing, especially with such a large-scale writing prize just around the corner.
