School Holiday Writing and Illustrating

Three holiday workshops with award-winning author/illustrator team Jodie McLeod and Eloise Short (Leonard the Lyrebird) and Erin Gough (The Flywheel, Amelia Westlake Was Never Here) have been created as pre-recorded (and completely free) one-hour workshops, which will be available on the WestWords YouTube channel.

Eloise’s drawing workshop will be available from Tuesday April 14, with Jodie’s writing session on the following day, Wednesday April 15. So grab your drawing and writing gear and jump on our channel to get some great tips from these two amazing creators! For 8–13 years.

Frenemies – Thursday April 16
Love-hate relationships are found in many forms of fiction, and for good reason. They bring conflict, and therefore interest, to a story line, allow the writer to explore the multiple dimensions of a character, and are a lot of fun to write.
Join Erin Gough for a masterclass in frenemies, to learn about writing characters and story lines that take this dynamic as a starting point. For 9-14 years.

You’ll find the workshops on our YouTube channel here:
