The group now meets on Saturday mornings during term times, and is guided by SA Writers Centre staff, mentors and guest teachers.

SA Writers is delighted to be partnering with Express Media to host Tracks, a travelling pop-up program for young writers that brings the best of Express Media’s workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities and special events to communities across Australia.

If you’re aged 14 to 25 and have a love of writing and storytelling, Tracks: Adelaide is an exciting day-long event just for you. Across the day, you’ll learn from some of the best writers in South Australia, take part in a fiction masterclass or a non-fiction masterclass, find out what opportunities there are for you in Adelaide and beyond, and discover what happens when you’ve been selected for publication. You’ll also hear the work of some of South Australia’s most exciting young writers, and meet the people and organisations that make the arts and literature community thrive. The full lineup will be released soon.
