Find your voice on the page.

Key Information Tuesday 1 - 2:30pm weekly | South Brisbane 

These creative writing sessions are held in person. Each workshop is an individual session, so if you miss a week or two, you won't be disadvantaged - come back when you can. Of course, the more you can attend, the more you will learn and develop as a writer.

Word on the Street is a creative writing course that will help you find your voice on the page. Working with a professional teacher, nothing will be left blank as we cover poetry, letters, short form writing, spoken word, and storytelling. Your teacher is Claire Christian - an award-winning author with several books published!

This is your chance to tell your story your way or follow the cues provided and be surprised by what you create.

Word on the Street is presented in partnership with the Queensland Writers Centre.

New members are always welcome - complete our online application form below to register for this engaging and educational program and all details will be provided on confirmation of your place in the program.
