Express Media, in partnership with Propel Youth Arts is delighted to present Making Tracks: Perth, a new travelling pop-up workshop series and zine publication aimed at developing the work of young regional writers in Australia.
Over four workshops every fortnight, 10 young writers will meet with an Express Media writer and editor to hone their writing skills and workshop a piece for publication. With two hours set aside for each workshop, the first hour will be reserved for teaching writing fundamentals including structure, tone, ethics and editing, and the second hour will be used to develop their own work. They will learn how to work with an editor and also edit their own writing in preparation for publication in Making Tracks, an Express Media zine sharing stories from young people living in regional and rural Australia .
This workshop series provides opportunity for emerging writers to workshop their writing, create and nourish a local youth writing community and a direct avenue to getting their work published. Following the workshop series, each participant has a week to submit their work to Express Media ready for publication.
If you’re aged 14 to 25 with a love of reading, writing, and storytelling, Making Tracks is an exciting opportunity to workshop your writing or comics and learn how to edit your work, work with an editor and prepare your work for publication.
In 2019, Express Media presents Making Tracks in Perth. Making Tracks is free but registrations are vital. Each participant will receive a free Express Media Membership and four back issues of Express’ premier literary journal, Voiceworks, all valued at $75.
