HSC workshops – Creative Writing is compulsory for the HSC but many students don’t know where to start. Our HSC level creative writing workshops are designed for years 10-12, and will focus on the current Area of Study (Discovery) as well as Extension 1 elective themes.  Our workshops help students gain the skills and techniques to think on their feet and approach their creative writing with confidence and flexibility.

Tutoring and Mentoring (HSC and other) Need expert feedback on your Extension 2 Major Work?  Or just worried about the Creative Writing components of the HSC English papers?  We offer one-to-one mentoring for students who feel they need a bit of extra help getting ready for this part of the HSC. Professional guidance is available for all print medium major works – including poetry, criticism, short story and script writing. We can also help with preparing for the English exam and with essay writing in general. Contact us to discuss
