Liverpool Young Writers

Liverpool Young Writers is a group of 11-19 year old spoken word artists and creative writers. Activities include weekly creative writing, learning and performance sessions, and regular events to showcase the work of the young writers. The group is organised by Writing on the Wall and was nominated for a BeMOBO Award in 2010. The group is currently on a break but keep an eye on the website for the launch of the new group and other live literature events and projects from Writing on the Wall.

  1. I’d love to join a community like this, I’m 16 and I’m a poet. If you could guide me through the process, I’ll appreciate that… 🙂
    Thank you so much
