The Michael King Writers' Centre (MKWC) Young Writers Programme provides talented young writers of senior high school age with the opportunity to grow and be inspired in writing workshops. Students join together in groups of up to 25 students with other like-minded peers to learn in workshops with novelists, journalists, lyricists, bloggers, short story writers, poets, editors, and comic book artists.
The programme has been run for the past six years by English teachers and tutors Ros Ali and Jo Emeney and is an invaluable opportunity for young talent to nurture and build on their writing skills in a focused and stimulating environment, at no cost to the students. Aside from gaining skills in creative writing, students also become part of a growing group of alumni and meet other like-minded, passionate writers with whom they can share their learning. For interested students, the programme offers an extension to the writing curriculum at school for further exposure with highly acclaimed professional writers and tutors or creative writing.
