EPICC Maleny provides creative learning and socialisation opportunities for people with disabilities in our community.

EPICC’s creativity program commenced operation at the Maleny Neighbourhood Centre in January, 2016. The program offers an innovative, post-school educational experience designed to foster and enable the learning of new skills and strategies, facilitate self expression and provide socialisation opportunities in our local community. ThereĀ are literacy and creative learning experiences involving writing and other creative modes including music making.

These experiences aim to enable the learning of new skills and strategies, facilitate self expression and provide socialisation opportunities within a local community context.

Although the creativity program is primarily being provided for youth and adults with disabilities, other interested persons are most welcome to join.

Improving narrative writing goal

One of our goals this term was to improve the quality of the body part of our narratives. We all felt confident that we can write good 'sizzling starts', but found we got bogged down when it came to writing the body section of stories.

Deb introduced to us the Seven Steps to Writing, Narrative Story Graph. If you want to know more about this, read this article: Seven Steps to Writing Narrative Story Graph

We have been experimenting with using this structure to guide us in our partner writing experiences.

Check out our latest writing posts and tell us what you think.
