Writing Classes launched in Bundaberg


Children and teens across Bundaberg will soon be able to sharpen their writing skills and push their imaginations to the limit with the arrival of Creative Writing Classes at the Bundaberg Regional Library from August.

A love of dragonsCreative Dragons workshop presenter Cherie Curtis taught creative writing classes to local children in 2007 and 2008 and said she was pleased to bring these lessons back to Bundaberg.

“Creative Dragons helps children and teenagers take their writing to the next level, whether it’s improving their wordsmithing, enhancing story structure or just thinking outside the square,” Mrs Curtis said.

“When I was employed by the Queensland Writers Centre to teach writing to children, we had a lot of fun and learnt a lot of interesting and important lessons. I’m looking forward to all that fun and creativity again.

   “…Some of my students are working on their own novels…”

“Some of my past students are now working on their own novels – and the rest are better skilled at English and writing, which comes in handy for all those assignments at high school and university.”

Creative Dragons will host creative writing classes for kids (Grades 5 to 7) and teenagers (Grades 8 to 10) at the Bundaberg Regional Library, starting in August. Children’s classes will run from 3.45pm until 4.40pm, while teen classes will run from 4.45pm until 5.40pm.

Places are limited so please book as soon as possible by emailing Mrs Curtis on cherie (at) quietdawn (dot) org.

Private classes are also available.
