Express Yourself – Write! (A Youth Week Creative Writing Workshop) This is a Youth Week 2016 event for teenagers 13-18 years old.

Award-winning author B. Michael Radburn will be running this fun and hands-on creative writing workshop.  He was a short-story teller before moving to novels which allow him to explore his characters, as well as the natural and supernatural environs.

You’ll get tips to get your story flowing and find out about the road to becoming published. If you have a story or a novel idea in the works, bring it along to get some practical advice. Michael mixes his workshop up with music and if you play an instrument, bring it along for an impromptu jam session at the end. Double the creativity! Double the fun!

WHEN: Wednesday, 13 April 2016 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

WHERE: Rockdale Town Hall Building – Level 1 448 Princes Highway, Rockdale.
