For those keen junior writers out there, Two Wells has a new group starting this month to help foster, support and develop your skills.
Or perhaps you’ve never put pen to paper but want to give it a go to see what eventuates.
Everyone has a story inside them somewhere, or so the saying goes, and 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 the Two Wells Young Writers Club.
The brainchild of Two Wells resident Haze Sackey, the group will offer an exciting new academic endeavour for the youth of Two Wells and surrounding suburbs and will be based out of 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, currently teaching at Playford Primary School.
Haze is passionate about sharing her love of reading and writing books with the writers of tomorrow.
“The club isn’t just for people who are already great at writing stories,” she said.
“It’s for anyone who has a story inside them but just need some help getting it out and onto paper.
“I’m excited about the club and looking forward to the possibilities it may bring forth for youth in the area.”
The free Two Wells Young Writers Club will run fortnightly on a Wednesday afternoon and will be a place for any youth aged 8-16 to come along to enjoy writing activities, guest speakers, enter writing competitions and share experiences with other like-minded people. The club will be holding its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, August 13, at the Two Wells Public Library from 4-5.30pm.
If you or someone you know may be interested in joining the club please contact Janine Harding on 8527 0200 or just ask the librarian at Two Wells Library for an information brochure next time you visit.
