The Write Up Workshop Series brings writing workshops straight to educators for online teaching.

Each workshop consists of a 45 minute pre-recorded video presented by a professional writer and supporting worksheets, designed to assist teachers in a remote-learning context to create a unit of work out of the workshop.

Accessing workshops

Each workshop is free to Australian educators. After RSVPing to a workshop, teachers will be provided with an access link. Teachers can share this link with students, or screenshare the workshop video. Each workshop is available to access for one week: see the workshop schedule for dates.

Workshop Outcomes

Students who produce creative
work can receive editorial comment from workshop presenters, and a publication outcome on the Stella site. Details will be provided to teachers upon RSVPing to a workshop.
