The Young Writers' Feast with New Writing North

*Booking required

Join New Writing North Young Writers' and try your hand at different forms of writing. From flash fiction to making your own comic books this is your opportunity to work with professional writers, learn new skills and be creative.

The Young Writers' Feast is a three course event, but it's up to you how many you wish to come along to, though we'd love it if you came to them all! Each course will consist of a taster workshop with a different writer. To finish up there will be a celebration event, so we can share our work with friends, family and other festival go-ers.
