Welcome to your online space!
Queensland Writers Centre has created this area of the Online Learning Centre just for the Young Scholars Program so that you can take the information that you learned during your workshop at QWC and extend your writing practice.
There are a a couple of forums where you can talk to each other about writing and share goals and ideas or ask for help if you are having trouble using the site or have questions about writing for QWC. To access these, simply click on the forum links on the left hand side of the page and start a new thread.
You’ll also see that there are some exercises and information in the sidebars that are not available at the moment. We’ll be opening a new module for you every week or so. Sometimes it will be a writing exercise, sometimes an activity or homework project, so make sure you check in weekly to keep up-to-date with what’s going on.
Every new module will appear below the last, so scroll down for the latest content.
I will be checking in weekly as well to make sure that you’re all travelling ok. If you have any questions about using the site, or something just isn’t working right, or you just want to ask a question about your writing, feel free to post a thread in the Help Me! forum.
The News & Announcements Forum is where I will put up any essential information – so this is definitely a place you should check into each time you log in.
We hope you enjoy your time in here. Don’t forget your sessions and rules of respect you learned with Christine, Edwina, and Meg – they will help you during your time online.
Write hard. Critique hard. We look forward to seeing what you create.
