Hi, I coordinate a dedicated and creative team of student leaders who are the driving force of WIG. Please contact me in Teams or email me at tania.sheko@mhs.vic.edu.au if you have any questions about the club.

Find WIG on Teams: WIG Writing Interest Group

Writing Interest Group (WIG) is an inclusive, supportive community of writers who love to write, share writing, write collaboratively and publish their writing in the group's blog, Stories @MHS.

WIG welcomes all students who are interested in writing, and is not concerned with any perceived level of expertise. 

The group is coordinated by teacher librarian, Tania Sheko, and led by enthusiastic, innovative student leaders. Leadership in the group is informed by a welcoming of all students, regardless of ability, valuing of community, sharing responsibilities, respect for all, and encouragement of creative initiatives. Past and current leaders have all been models of this type of leadership.

2020 LeadershipTeam: Captain: Amogh Kulkarni;  Vice Captain: Matt San Buenaventura; Nick Huang, Thiv Edirisinghe, Ananya Goswami and Adit Sivakumar.

In 2019 the group published its first hard-copy magazine, WICK.

“WICK is the celebration of student voice and creativity in published form. This inaugural issue offers a selection of writing styles and themes, many of which articulate issues embedded in the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships program at Melbourne High School. Melbourne High School is committed to generational and cultural change through education and workplace practice to help create a future free from domestic violence.

Members are encouraged to join the private Facebook group, WIG - MHS Writing Interest Group, to stay informed. The group is also a place for discussion, sharing of ideas and online resources.

The group meets every Friday at lunchtime in the GLC. Members are welcome to bring their lunch and should probably bring their laptop.

During Covid19 WIG continues to meet and write in Teams. WIG leaders announce these writing sessions through student channels and also in the Facebook group.
