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.”
If a young person wants to be a guitarist when they grow up, they can get guitar lessons, join a band, go to concerts… It’s easy enough to acccomdate for that aspiration.
But what if they say they want to become an author? Where do you send them for that?
The Launch Pad Writers Club is a creative writing club that is run by an Aussie author, from inside a publishing label.
Members of the Launch Pad Writers Club will become published authors within one year of membership – guaranteed – in the Launch Pad Writers Club Anthology book, published by Up & Up Media. Our students will be able to learn about writing, and work on their own short stories, novels, poems, etc., with the help of industry professionals, authors, and likeminded students along the way.
Every week we have special guests (famous authors, creative people, sports people, etc.) visiting the club to inspire and teach our members. Additionally, because the club is part of Up & Up Media (Publishing Label), we have no shortage of talented writers on staff to help our young members become brilliant authors.
It’s not all just working on stories, either. Sometimes you just want to be part of something awesome. Our members can use the space every day after school to just hang out with like-minded people. We’ve got board games, video games, movies, a full library of books and comics, all kinds of fun activities, interesting conversations (always!), and not to mention that our members are encouraged to participate in the film-making process for our Launch Pad Writers Club YouTube Channel.

Open to kids 8-16 years old, we encourage all to come along, read, write, and hang out at the Launch Pad Writers Club.
