Youngsters invited to try creative writing

Young people invited to try new creative writing sessions in Cramlington.

New Writing North and bait are launching a week of free taster sessions in August for young writers aged 12 to 19 at Cramlington Library from Monday, August 18, to Friday, August 22, from 11am to 4pm.

The taster sessions will be run by the Cuckoo Young Writers programme led by New Writing North, which supports young writers to learn and develop their creative writing skills.

The fun and relaxed sessions, which will be led by experienced poets, writers, playwrights and wordsmiths, will guide the group to try a range of different writing techniques and styles, from scriptwriting to poetry and spoken word.
