New Writing North runs three-day Summer Schools across the North East, where young people aged 12-19 work on exciting creative writing projects with professional writers and artists.

For our first Gateshead Summer School we will be taking inspiration from works of art to create our own film stories!

After looking around the Shipley Art Gallery for hidden stories to excite our imagination, we will make our own pieces of spoken word poetry with masterclasses from writers John Challis and Lisette Auton. Then, on the final day, we will use these to have fun making our own short films. Find out more and sign up here.
