Arts Award success for Cuckoo Young Writers in Hexham

Posted by

Last week New Writing North were proud to present six of our Cuckoo Young Writers with their Bronze Arts Awards certificates. The young writers, all of whom belong to the Hexham group, worked on their awards throughout last year, and used writing group sessions with Stevie Ronnie and events at the Hexham Book Festival to complete their Arts Award folders.

“Arts Awards are a great way for the young writers to get accreditation for all their hard work in the writing group sessions, and are a great way to learn new skills,” said Laura Brewis, who acted as the Arts Award advisor to the group. “It’s very exciting to see the Hexham group receive their certificates and achieve the success they deserve.”

The young people who took part are: (left to right in photo) Alice Buckley, Bronwen Fraser, Marcie Winstanley and Dorothy Hakim. Megan Ashford and Tilly Marples also received their awards but were unable to be in the photo.
