Holiday Workshops

During any holidays, while tumbleweeds are rolling through the abandoned playgrounds of schools all over the land, budding writers are applying themselves to the task in workshops at the Martian Embassy.

Often we deliver these workshops in collaboration with partner organisations such as the Boys and Girls Brigade, Settlement Services International, the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence, Compass (Sydney University) and others.

Each workshop has its own wild and vibrant theme, from the Book of Beards workshop in which young writers create elaborately hirsute characters and send them off on hair-raising adventures, to the Martian Catalogue workshop in which copy is crafted for intergalactic must-haves that would make even Marcia the Martian Librarian reach straight for her slime-crusted purse.
