Learn the secrets of writing great stories from an award-winning author
"Write Like an Author" is a school holiday program for young writers.

Held in a fun and supportive setting at Kohia Terrace School in Auckland this camp will see children develop and write stories with help from award-winning author Maria Gill.

Maria is the award-winning author of over 60 books. She has won the New Zealand Book Awards for Children & Young Adults Non-Fiction, and the Margaret Mahy Best Book of the Year Award.

It will be held during the school holidays, from Tuesday, 26th September 2023 to Thursday, 28th September 2023.

There will be a three day camp for children aged 9 to 14 and a one day workshop for children aged 7 to 10.

Young writers will learn:
* How to come up with story ideas
* How to plan and outline a story
* How to come up with interesting, sympathetic characters
* The writing process, how to put it all down on paper

Plus they'll make new friends and have heaps of fun!

The location of the camp is:
Kohia Terrace School

The camp is non-residential, and runs from 9 am to 4 pm each day.
The number of places on the camp is strictly limited so register early if your child is interested in attending the camp.

If your child enjoys creative writing, they are sure to love this special school holiday camp.
