Senior English students from Oberon High School attended the secondary schools creative writing workshops held as part of the 2018 Bathurst Writers Festival last Friday.

The workshops were conducted by celebrated Australian authors JC Burke and Megan Jacobson and covered topics such as how to get started as a writer, how to build a story, using language to create the desired impact and different ways to make writing more engaging. 

The workshops were a wonderful opportunity for the students to meet published authors and talk with them face-to-face. 

The students found the workshops insightful and enjoyed hearing how these two authors achieved success. 

The students are now keener than ever to continue to pursue their passion for expressing themselves, particularly through creative writing.
