In a creative move to support young writers in the area, one local author has teamed up with the District Council of Mallala to establish a writing group.
The Two Wells Young Writers Club is the brainchild of Two Wells resident Haze Sackey and is soon to be launched.
The group will offer an exciting new academic endeavour for the youth of Two Wells and surrounding suburbs and will be based out of the Two Wells Public Library.
The club will be run and supervised by Haze, who is a published author, award-winning photographer and qualified middle school teacher.
“Two Wells has an amazing sporting rich community, but I really saw the need for an academic type club,” Haze said when asked about why she wanted to start the Junior Writers Club.
“But it’s more than that, the club isn’t just for people who are great at writing stories already, it’s for anyone who has a story inside of them and that they just need some help getting it out and onto paper.’
The Junior Writers Club will run fortnightly on a Wednesday afternoon and will be a place for any youth aged 8-16 to come along and enjoy writing activities, guest speakers, enter writing competitions and share experiences with other like-minded people.
With the help of DCM community services officer, Janine Harding, Haze intends to incorporate the use of digital technology into the club.
“This is an amazing initiative and it will be an absolute pleasure to help the young people of Two Wells create something that can only benefit the entire community,” Janine said.
The club will be holding its inaugural meeting on Wednesday August 12 at the Two Wells Public Library from 4pm – 5.30pm. All meetings are free and are open to all students aged 8-16.
