Young Writers Group

Categories:
Young Writers Group

 

In partnership with The Minack Theatre, KEAP and The Writers’ Block host a regular, monthly Young Writers’ Group.  This is aimed at young people from 12-16 who have a passion for writing and reading.  It is a safe and special space for them to be writers and to develop and refine their craft.

Each session will be led by writers and story republicans Max Webb and Olivia Lowry.  Although they will cover many aspects of creative writing, from stories to poetry, the overall focus will be on writing for performance.

The first session is on Saturday September 29th and runs from 10am– 1pm at The Writers’ Block in Cornwall College in Pool. The cost is £7.50 a session. The sessions to follow will be Saturday November 3rd, 10am-1pm and December 1st, 10am-3pm. All 3 sessions can be booked together and in advance for £20.

We are creating a network of young writers to feed off one another, get their visions into words and hook into Cornwall’s rich cultural life.

Suitable for age 12-16 years.

Tickets are available from CRBO, by telelphone on 01726 879500 or buy at Heartlands Pool or Tourist Offices in Penzance, St Ives or Truro or  01726 879500.
