Young writers needed for Wonders of the North festival

Posted by

New Writing North is looking for young writers aged 11-19 to get involved in a playwriting project, which will be part of the Wonders of the North festival taking place across the region from 27 July-4 August. Young people will work with a professional playwright and young actors and directors from Northern Stage to produce a piece of site-specific theatre which will be performed “on location”, as part of the festival. Young people involved will not only write the play but will plan and direct the project too.

The first meeting of the group is 17 March. If you’d like more information or to get involved, email [email protected].

The Wonders of the North festival is a project organised by Changemakers, a national organisation which aims unlock young people’s leadership potential, and is part of the Cultural Olympiad in the North East. For more information about Changemakers, go to
