This regular recreational group guided by an experienced and caring facilitator (who is also a published author) is for home-schooled students who love or want to explore the world of creative writing and publishing.
The group nurtures creativity, teaches development of writing skills and provides a platform to meet like-minded friends their own age. Young writers will find themselves engaging in lively discussions on everything from books, authors, genres, the wider literary world, and writing technique. 'What makes this book popular?' 'What would you do to change it to make it a flop?' 'What style of writing do you like best?' 'How do you create a lovable or creepy character and make them believable?'
Everyone is encouraged to engage in readings and friendly critiquing to help one another improve plot lines, dialogue and characters - and in doing this, the students gain confidence in their writing and improve their public speaking and performance skills.
How KSP's previous students describe Renee Hammond:
* 'Totally tubular' * 'Nice' *
* 'Helpful, understanding' * 'Fun' *
* 'Very fabulous' * 'Friendly' *
Renee is a local Perth hills novelist. She served as Chairperson of the KSP Writers’ Centre for three years, and in that time she facilitated the youth writing program and formed the only organised romance writing group for adults in Western Australia. In her capacity as a KSP volunteer and community leader, Renee was nominated as a finalist for the 2014 Citizen of the Year. Her knowledge and passion for teaching the craft of writing in all forms - but not the way you learn in school! - makes her a wonderful facilitator for young writers.
