Young People’s Writing Squads (Literature Wales)

The Young People’s Writing Squads support young writers working in both English and Welsh across Wales. Young people are generally selected for one of the 23 squads by the age of 9 or 10, with headteachers in each authority identifying enthusiastic and talented young writers. There are squads established in nearly every local authority in Wales by now. Literature Wales offers funding to local authorities to set up new Young People’s Writing Squads.
