Page Talk Young Writers’ Week

October 27, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Page Talk Young Writers’ Week has been postponed until early 2015. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Page Talk is a series of Creative Writing workshops and festivals for young writers aged 12-16.

The Young Writers’ Week explores the world of creative writing through inspiring workshops with professional writers and culminates in a one day festival of events.

A group of young people will work with professionals to produce a variety of new writing. Past events have seen poetry, live radio plays and real life story telling. This time around participants can also sample Flash Fiction and Journalism

At the end of the week, the young writers will have the chance to take part in the Page Talk Young Writers’ Festival, featuring a series of events. This gives young writers the chance to show their friends, family and members of the public what they have been working on during the week, as well as meet and get advice from professionals.

We are looking for a group of young people aged 12-16 who are free and ready to get creative in Staffordshire in the Autumn half term from 27th October – 1st November. Their venue for the week will be the Shire Hall Gallery in the centre of Stafford. The Shire Hall Gallery is housed in the Grade 2* listed building which is situated in the heart of Stafford’s town centre. Workshops and performances will take place in the building’s two historic Courtrooms.

This is the perfect opportunity for young writers to gain experience working with professional writers. We are looking for people of all abilities to take part in this project and welcome everybody with a passion for creative writing.
