Have you ever dreamed of being a writer? Or maybe you’d like to have a go at poetry, scriptwriting, songwriting or reviewing?

Whether you’ve already got a novel on your memory stick or are looking for a bit of inspiration to give your writing a kick-start, this New Writing North Young Writers South Shields’ group is the thing you’ve been looking for. Held weekly in term time, it offers young writers aged 12-19 a chance to share their work, learn new skills, and give and receive feedback in a creative and supportive atmosphere.
