On Wednesday, 28 April, Junior Years held IdeasPLUS@Glennie Writing Workshops for our Year 3, 4 and 5 girls with Dr Cameron Stelzer. Dr Cameron engaged the girls in workshops to inspire their creativity and writing. There was discussion and inspiration throughout the workshops, as well as an opportunity to write.
I enjoyed learning new ways to write stories and to be given tips from an actual author was amazing! I found it fun and enjoyable. It was a great way to learn how to improve our writing but in an interesting way. I would love to do it again.
This year, Dr Cameron’s books have really sparked my interest. He is a creative, inspiring writer that really has helped me improve my writing skills.
I love going to Dr Cameron Stelzer’s workshops. They’re very fun all of the time and they introduce me to new books and techniques for writing. Dr Cameron’s advice is really good for writing stories where you want to hook the reader in. My teacher read the first two chapters of Pie Rats, and I desperately wanted to read some more. I love his workshops and I hope that I do them again soon.
Learning about the writing process from Dr Cameron Stelzer was a blast and helped us a lot in our NAPLAN preparation. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again soon.
Dr Cameron gave me a lot of cool ideas. I really enjoyed learning about his funny and exciting books. I would really recommend his books to any age. The ‘Pie Rats’ and the ‘Scallywags’ books are really great. I really enjoy his workshops and I can’t wait to do another one soon!
I enjoyed hearing Dr Cameron's ideas and how to use those ideas. I am going to start reading the Scallywags series when I have got time. The workshop was great and I was hoping to learn more with him in the future.

I really enjoyed going to Dr Cameron's workshop. All of his advice has really helped me with my writing. He also made it really fun because we got to draw some of his characters and make up our own interesting characters and describe them in an introduction. After Dr Cameron’s workshop, I have been desperate to read his books. I hope he will come back for another workshop.
