Young Writers’ Summer Schools

Ready for a summer bursting with ideas and creative energy? With music, art, poetry and theatre? Well done, you’ve found New Writing North’s Young Writers’ Summer Schools.

Our 3-day Young Writers’ Summer Schools take place across the North East. Here, young people aged 12-19 work on exciting creative writing projects with professional writers and artists. Recent projects have included songwriting, animation, rap, plays, crime writing and poetry.

We want to make sure you get the chance to write all year round, so whether you’re already a keen writer or just looking to try something new, Summer Schools are a great way to get involved and immerse yourself in a project.

Is it for me?

Lots of different people take part in our Summer Schools. Some of them already attend our weekly Young Writers’ Groups, while others are looking for fun new stuff to do during the holidays. Either way, you’ll meet new people and spend a fun few days being creative and trying out new ideas.

How much does it cost?

Young Writers’ Summer Schools are completely free to take part in, hooray!

How do I sign up?
