The Writers’ Block: writing workshops in Cornwall for 11-16 year olds

Four young writers sitting on a sofa and grinning with notebooks

The information below was for Autumn 2021. Check the website for more up-to-date information.

Monthly creative writing classes for 11-16 year olds brimming with ideas and stories. Each session will have a different theme and be led by Cornish writers Olivia Lowry and Casey Bottono.

What happens?
Each session is full of discussion, short, fun exercises to get the creativity flowing and longer time to really get into your writing.

Who’s it for?
Any young writer aged 11-16 years. All you need is curiosity, a willingness to have a go and a notebook and pen. Then who knows what you’ll produce… We are creating a network of young writers to feed off one another, get their visions into words and hook into Cornwall’s rich cultural life.

The first session on 25th September will be a face to face session held at Kresen Kernow in Redruth and will include a tour of the building and the Ordinalia exhibition as well as a creative writing workshop.

The second two sessions will be online workshops run using Zoom. A link will be sent to your email a couple of days before the event.

Saturdays September 25th, November 6th, December 4th 2021 10.00am-12pm
£5 per workshop.
