Young people aged 12-19. No writing experience necessary. Everyone is welcome.

The South Shields Young Writers’ Group meets at National Centre for the Written Word (The Word) on Saturdays during term-time.

With Lisa Burns as Group Leader, the group has explored loads of different literary genres and writing styles including poetry, folklore, animation, songwriting and crime-writing. It’s a fun and welcoming group for anyone wanting to develop their writing talent, or simply looking to come along and give it a try.

Get in touch if you’d like some more info or drop in to see us at The Word on Saturday mornings.
