Fantastic Fantasy Novels and How to Write Them

New Writing North’s free summer programmes are for young people aged 11-19 to try fun writing projects, meet like-minded people and make something new in a relaxed, friendly and inclusive environment.

From Hogwarts to the Hunger Games, the fantasy novel genre has never been more popular. Come and take part in Fantastic Fantasy Novels and How to Write Them, where you’ll work with professional writers from the field to explore the key ingredients of fantasy novel writing. Learn how to create fantastical characters and mythical creatures, build dramatic worlds and magic systems, and structure that all important heroic quest!

No previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to work together, share ideas and try something new!

Tickets are free! But if you can, please consider donating to the charity when booking your ticket. With support from people like you, we can help to cover the costs of providing free creative writing programmes for children and young people. These run throughout the year, often in disadvantaged areas where there are fewer opportunities.

We work to help these young people to realise their potential. We develop skills, nurture talent, and encourage them to have a go at creative writing. We create environments where young writers can make friends, boost their confidence, try out new things, and have fun!

Our suggested donation is £25, but anything you can give will make a big difference. Thank you.
