The USQ Creative Writing Two Day Experience is designed for year 10, 11 and 12 students who have a passion for writing and have future aspirations to study a Bachelor of Arts (Creative & Critical Writing).

Aspiring writers will work with a professional writer and editor to develop their own story ideas and hone their writing process. Participants will learn how to;

  • take a great idea to the next level.
