The Young Writers’ Program is written and delivered by Dr Eileen Herbert-Goodall. Eileen is a published author and has taught as a high school teacher and a university tutor/lecturer.

Eileen visits schools located in Southeast Queensland (primarily the Sunshine Coast), to train/mentor kids in the craft of creative writing and editing. She can run writing workshops that span across weeks, or hours, depending on the requirements of schools and students.

Below you’ll find the work of her students on display…
