Youth Week is an annual celebration of young people aged between 12 and 25 in the Gladstone Region during which the Gladstone Regional Council supports free events.
Creative Ink were excited to be able to run one of these events, “Writing After Dark.” The workshop gave participants the opportunity to explore writing in the ‘darker’ genres of fantasy, thrillers, horror and sci-fi. During the workshop we covered creating believable characters, plots and tropes, and each participant left the night with the beginning of a story. Of course, the night was fuelled by lollies along with pizza for dinner to fuel the creative brain cells.
Thank you to everyone who signed up for the workshop, we had a great time exploring the darker genres with you all!
