Working with writer Lauren Vevers you will try out a wide range of different creative writing styles. At our Young Writers groups we do everything from making our own zines to creating short animated films; writing poetry, crime, fantasy and scripts. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never tried writing before. Come along, meet likeminded creative young people and try something new!

Gateshead Young Writers is open to young people aged 12-19, everyone is welcome – no experience necessary! You can register your interest in advance here or just turn up on the day.
