REMINDER: For the 4 and 11 May we’ll be at Skimstone Arts instead of the City Library. Find us here: Skimstone Arts, 3RD FLOOR, Commercial Union House, 39 Pilgrim St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6QE

If you’re unsure of the venue, Zoe and Miles will meet you at the library outside our usual room at 10.55, and walk you over to our temporary venue. Please try and get to the library early!

Newcastle Young Writers’ Group is an extremely inclusive and welcoming group. Led by Group Leader Zoe Murtagh, the group has worked with a ton of different writers and had creative writing masterclasses exploring stand-up comedy, scriptwriting, zine-making and dark fiction.

The group has most recently worked with animator Sheryl Jenkins, on a three-day animation Summer School where they looked at different techniques exploring visual narratives. This group meets at Newcastle City Library and because of it’s City Centre location – less than a five minute walk from Monument Metro station – is super easy to travel to for young people living across the North East.

Get in touch if you’d like some more info or simply rock-up if you fancy giving it a go!
