The Younger Young Writers’ Program has been created specifically for writers aged 13 to 17 who possess a passion and talent for writing in all its forms. The YYWP runs separately from the main festival, with sessions and workshops directly catered to high school students. 

Please note there are three streams spread across two days:

  • Session A: Becoming a writer (Thu 28 Sep, 1-5pm)
  • Session B: Making media (Fri 29 Sep, 10am-1pm)
  • Session C: Advanced fiction (Fri 29 Sep, 1-4pm)
