Calling all young storytellers in the Bendigo region! We're delighted to be partnering with our friends at Express Media to bring a travelling pop-up program for young writers to you in August.

Tracks brings the best of Express Media’s workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities and special events to communities across Australia.

On Saturday August 11, we’re bringing the Tracks program to Bendigo, partnering with Bendigo Writers Festival (August 10 - 12). We'll take the best of Express Media right to your backyard.

If you’re aged 14 to 25 and have a love of writing and storytelling, Tracks: Bendigo is an exciting day- long event just for you. Take part in workshops and networking opportunities with the brightest wordsmiths across Australia.

Join a world building, setting and identity workshop with award winning novelist Maxine Beneba Clarke, or a writing from life workshop with spoken word and creative nonfiction writer Lian Low. Learn about opportunities for young writers from Bendigo and beyond. Take a crash course in best editing practise with Voiceworks editor Mira Schlosberg, or hone your live performance skills with Hawiine Kadir.

Finish the day off with a bang, as our Twilight Tales event showcases some of Victoria’s best young writers in a special line-up including Manisha Anjali, Lasith Kulasekara, Taylor Clayton and more.
