For Young People


Meet and share thoughts with fellow writers and readers in our story workshops for young people. A place of your own to read, write or draw your stories. Sometimes, you might even game them.

After-School Workshops

Free, but please book. Fruit provided for afternoon tea.


Level 44 Write Club

For secondary school students

Writing is often a solitary pursuit, but even real authors hook up with their fellow writers every now and then to share their work and bounce ideas around. Whether it be a murder mystery novel, a sci-fi zombie romance comic, or an epic poem about life as a Neanderthal, we can help you develop it, or just provide a quiet space so you can do your writerly thing.

Drop in to 100 Story Building’s cosy workshop space every Tuesday afternoon to work on that thing you’re writing. Volunteers will be on hand to help you get your creative ideas flowing, and there will be regular sharing and discussion sessions.

4:30–5:30pm, every Tuesday during school terms. 2017 workshops begin Tuesday 31 January.

Register here, or call or email us for a chat:, 9044 8215.



Level 87 Book Club

*Due to renovation works, Level 87 Book Club is now on Level 100.*
For secondary school students

Sometimes, getting lost in a good book requires companionship.

So far this year, Book Club has considered the merits of blurbs, book versions vs movie versions (and which ones you can skip), reading outside your favourite genres, never finishing books vs always finishing books and what belongs on the 100 Story Building bookshelves.

If you’re keen to share a book you love, discover some new ones, or just find a place to curl up and read in peace, then Book Club afternoons at 100 Story Building are just the thing!

4–6pm, every Thursday during school terms. 2017 workshops begin Thursday 2 February.

Register here, or call or email us for a chat:, 9044 8215.



Level 87 Podcasting

For secondary school students

All year, Level 87 Book Club have been talking about books, authors, fan fic, school texts they loathe and how book characters relate to real life.

Now, they’d like you to join the conversations … literally. Come along and create a podcast with Level 87.

There will be food. And best of all, it’s FREE!

Check back for school holiday sessions. Free, but please book.

Listen to the podcast here.
