launch pad after school
Creative Writing Maker-Space.
What We Do...
"The Launch Pad Writers Club is a maker-space for authors. A hang-out zone for bookish creators. It's the club every author wishes existed when they were young."
Launch Pad After School is a creative writing maker-space, run by an Aussie author, from inside a publishing label.
We love to nerd-out about books, authors, and writing, share and work on our own stories, and meet special guest authors who visit our club.
Launch Pad is something to belong to. By joining our club, young aspiring authors can meet like-minded students, professional authors, and creatives from all fields. (Reclusive writer cliché - begone!)
Our club is part of the Up & Up Media group (a Melbourne-based Independent Publishing Label), which means we have a large network of talented writers available to help our members become brilliant authors.
