Our Blacktown Young Writers’ Group, which has been meeting since 2013, provides an opportunity for Western Sydney writers aged 14-18 years to intensely focus and strengthen their creative skills. The program includes weekly creative writing workshops, masterclasses with a range of writers for young people and online publication.
