Do you like writing? Would you like to work with a professional writer and find out more about different genres and techniques?

ArtfulScribe and Mayflower Engage are inviting young people in academic years 3 to 6 (Junior Writers) & academic years 7 to 9 (Young Writers) to get involved with a regular creative writing group that will help develop skills, confidence and experience of a writer’s life.

Participants will explore creative writing through workshops on topics like characterisation, dialogue, setting and plot, as well as through practical exercises. Writers will work across genres including non-fiction, fiction, poetry and script-writing.

Sessions will take place on a weekly basis, on Saturday mornings during term times. All sessions will take place at MAST Mayflower Studios. Junior Writers meet from 9.3o-11am; Young Writers from 11.15am-1pm.

These sessions are free but we are looking for commitment. All workshops are suitable for beginners and advanced writers.

Participants are welcome to try a session before committing to the group with a free taster session. Please ring the box office to book your taster: 02380 711811
