Our Young Writers’ Groups meet weekly in term time in Amble, Cramlington, Gateshead, Newcastle, South Shields, and Sunderland, as well as a Young Songwriters’ Group in the west end of Newcastle. They give young people the opportunity to meet like-minded peers, and work with professional writers and artists to explore different genres, styles and forms of creative writing.
We host Summer Schools, trips and other one-off projects, so you can get involved in our Young Writers’ programme the whole year round.
The groups are completely FREE and open to everyone. So if you’re aged between 12-19, get yourself down to one of the hubs listed below and give it a go.
