Event Website

A monthly session for young people who are brimming with ideas and stories and want to share them with like-minded, friendly young writers and readers. All in an artist-created space which is dedicated to firing the imagination and encouraging creative writing, that is The Writers’ Block.

Each session on a Saturday morning is full of discussion, short, fun exercises to get the creativity flowing, longer time to really write and get into your story, led by Cornish writers Olivia Lowry and Casey Bottono. Each term we plan to have a guest writer, for example songwriters. We also visit The Minack Theatre at least once a year for inspiration. And there’s always lots of juice and biscuits.

Who’s it for?

Any young writer aged between twelve and sixteen. All you need is curiosity, a willingness to have a go and a notebook and pen. Then who knows what we’ll produce…

When is it?

September 28th, November 2nd, December 14th from 10am -1pm

Cost: £5 per session
