Stories were shared, poetry recited and even a song was sung at Virtual School Victoria’s (VSV) first Writers’ Club meeting.
Ten students – ranging from Year 4 to Year 12 – came together to share their love of words and support each other in their creative endeavors.
Alice Thompson, a Year 8 and 9 English teacher at VSV, said the afternoon was an incredible success.
‘Students shared amazing work. It was a really supportive, welcoming, and enjoyable first session! VSV students are so talented!’ she enthused.
Alice said the club was set up by herself and fellow VSV teachers, Jeanette Carter and Chrissie McMahon, to provide a space for young writers to share their work with peers and teachers.
‘It’s important for our creative writers to have a place where they can share their work, receive feedback and be recognised,’ she said.
Alice pointed out that another benefit of the club is to connect with like-minded individuals from a range of backgrounds and age-groups.
Writers’ Club is open to any VSV student who enjoys writing or listening to what other students have been creating.
Writers’ Club is held on the last Friday of every month at 1.00 pm. There is also a google classroom page where students can share writing in between sessions.
