To be held at Melbourne Museum on Wednesday 25 March, Write Up Melbourne will feature presentations, panels and hands-on workshops by a range of inspiring writers.
To complement Girls Write Up this year, the Stella Schools Program has introduced an online zine, Talking Back!
Write Up is an inter-school, all-day festival of talks, interactive panels and practical workshops created by teens for teens. It inspires creativity and empowerment through writing and sharing stories.
Write Up’s unique, innovative program of talks, interactive panels and practical workshops explores the relationships between language, gender and power. It elevates voices and stories that have historically been devalued or marginalised, and gives all participants the opportunity to discover their own creative voice, equipping them with the skills and the confidence to use it.
Over the course of the day, authors, journalists, artists, poets and other creative thinkers and emerging leaders share how they use writing to define their identities and shape the world around them.
Write Up is for anyone who has felt limited by their gender and wants to understand how language can be used to liberate and empower.
Each year, a number of complimentary subsidised tickets to Write Up are made available via our outreach program.
