Writing for Publication

  • Martian Embassy 176 Redfern St Redfern NSW 2016 Australia (map)

A special, invitation-only workshop...

Okay, we'll admit it...Southerly (a very famous, quite prestigious and generally excellent literary journal) is looking to publish some writing by high school students in an upcoming issue and they approached us about finding some students who might be interested. Southerly have offered to publish three pieces of student writing (of about 2000 words) and as part of the offer Southerly editors will work closely with the selected student to improve their pieces and prepare them for publication. 

But, even if a piece isn't selected for publication, it's still a great chance to spend a day working on your novella (if you're a current student) or (if you're a former student) working to develop a piece you've already started. Over the day there'll be time to discuss and compare work with other students, run through a collection of activities that might lead to new stories and explore some useful editing techniques. We also promise to throw in a few other amusing diversions... 

This is a by-invitation only holiday workshop.
