Online Creative Story Writing

Tailored to the online setting, our online creative story writing programs leverage the advantages of Zoom, providing unique and immersive experiences for young writers everywhere.

“We have loved being involved with the Melbourne Young Writers Studio. Our daughter loves to read and write and was looking for an extension program.  However, we live 3.5 hours from Melbourne and every program we looked at required attendance in the city.  MYWS had an online weekly program for small groups. This format was perfect for us!  The tutoring quality has been excellent and our daughter has really enjoyed and benefited from being involved with MYWS.”

– Michelle, MYWS Parent


Small creative writing groups, perfect for inspiring imagination, equipping young writers with practical writing tools and techniques and providing a fun, supportive online environment where young writers can explore!

Young writers are matched to groups according to their age, interests and skill level and are mentored by a practising writer. In their weekly session, young writers journey into the craft of story; receiving written and verbal feedback on their work, bouncing around ideas, drawing on examples from literature and screen and putting the tools and techniques acquired through prompts and lessons into practice as they develop their own stories. Creative Story Writing Groups are fun, full of discussion and creativity, and are the perfect place for kids and teens to be inspired, develop a strong understanding of the craft of story and hone their writing skills. Young writers will develop confidence in their ideas, deepen their ability to express themselves through story, and connect with a community of other writers. Sessions run Mon-Fri 4:15pm-5:15pm & 5:30pm-6:30pm and all day Saturday. Free trials welcome at any time where there are appropriate groups with availability.


Story Studios Australia offers a limited number of 1:1 or 1:2 mentorships for young writers who may need extra support, or for those older writers who are working on a larger project and would like further guidance. The mentorships are tailorable according to the needs and interests of the young writer(s). Mentorships are subject to the availability of a timeslot and a well matched mentor.

Trials any time subject to above. Trials for Private Mentorships are $50
