KSP Launches New Holiday Program

July 12, 2016

What do you get when you cross ten young writers, an experienced author of more than 80 books and a cold winter’s day? The perfect environment to develop creativity and foster the next generation of writers.

 

The KSP Holiday Hub on Tuesday 12 July 2016 began the day with introductions and an overview of the various types of articles that could appear in newspapers in magazines, from book reviews to travel articles to short stories and everything in between. Participants were then given a crash course in conducting an interview, ready for a session with Goldie Alexander, author of more than 80 books. In addition to the interview, Goldie also spoke about creating catchy titles.

 

 

 

After lunch, participants spent time drafting their chosen pieces, which included an article about a sailing competition in Darwin, a news feature about the recent Orlando shooting, book reviews and extracts from current fiction projects. Those interested also read their pieces to camera at the KSP news desk.

 

 

 

 

The day disappeared quickly, and we soon found ourselves at the end of the day, with some wishing for another day of activities.

 

At KSP Writers' Centre, we believe that workshops such are these are crucial in developing creativity and fostering the writing talent of the next generation. Be sure to take note of the names of the writers in this zine, as we’re sure we’ll be seeing and hearing from them again. To members of the KSP Holiday Hub, we would love to continue encouraging and supporting your writing, so please stay in touch, and we hope to see you at future events.

 

Thanks to Goldie Alexander for visiting, and also to KSP Chairwoman, camera woman and caterer extraordinaire, Tabetha Beggs, and KSP Director, Shannon Coyle, for organising and ensuring the day happened.
