(1) Summer School - Writing Excellence Programs for Young Scholars

Five Day Discount


Good morning,

We are holding our inaugural Five-Day Summer School at the Queensland, Academy For Creative Industries, Brisbane, from Monday, 8th January to Friday 12th January, 2018, and we'd like to extend a special invitation to our community.

Sam and I would like to invite you take advantage of our five-day price available only to our community. We'd like to offer you the full five-day program for $250.

Do you want to start the new school year with a pizzaz? This is your chance to master the skills necessary to succeed to the best of your ability in 2018. Writing killer essays, crafting stories that sing and speaking with aplomb are just a few of the skills you'll pick up during the five-day Summer School. Making new friends, being challenged to achieve at your highest level and inspiring you to take risks in a safe learning environment are what we're all about.

We work daily with Young Scholars in our Writing Excellence Programs and we know the joys that come with aspiring to academic excellence. Mix this with the self-confidence to shine and you'll come away feeling like the new academic year is yours for the taking. We invite you to join in the fun, and start the new school year with your best foot forward. If you choose to dance a little along the way then all the better.

We'll also provide you with tips on study habits, organisational skills and time management at each of our sessions.

If you would prefer to attend individual sessions you can do that, too. You can choose to attend for any single day for $65 by visiting our Eventbrite page here:


Day 1 - How to Write a Killer Essay

Day 2 - The Voices in Your Head Storytelling

Day 3 - Stand & Deliver Public Speaking and Debating

Day 4 - Theatre/Performance

Day 5 - How to Write a Graphic Novel

Once again, our price to you is $250 for the full five day program. Each workshop runs from 10.00am to 3.00pm, and includes nibbles; fruit, dips, biscuits and the occasional jelly snake. This full-week offer is available until all tickets are sold.

See you in January...
