Learn to write stories like a published author - with a published author!
'Write Like an Author' is a fun holiday camp for young writers.

Held in a fun and supportive setting at Scots College in Wellington, this camp will see children aged 10 to 14 years create, develop and write awesome stories with help from award-winning author and writing coach Maria Gill.

Maria is the award-winning author of over 57 books. She has won the New Zealand Book Awards for Children & Young Adults Non-Fiction, and the Margaret Mahy Best Book of the Year Award. Over three jam-packed days, children will develop their writing skills and discover how they too can write like a professional author!

The number of places on the camp is strictly limited so register early if your child is interested in attending the camp.

The camp is non-residential, and runs from 9am to 4pm each day.
The course fee is $180 including a discount for early-bird registration.

If your child enjoys creative writing, they are sure to love this special school holiday camp. Not only will they be able to focus on their writing, they will also make new friends!
