Wanted: young people with strong opinions!

Posted by

Are you a young person with strong views about the state of the world? Are you worried about getting a job, angry about tuition fees or have something to say about the effects of cuts on your local area? We want to know what you think!

In the coming months, writer Jake Campbell will be running a series of free writing workshops for young people (14+) which will give you a chance to make your voice heard about the issues that are important to you. Whether you’re a keen writer or just want to try something new, this is a chance to get your ideas and opinions down on paper and be included in an “Uncertain Times” anthology.

We are running workshops in South Shields and Newcastle:
