Opportunities for writers to help young people

Millennium Bridge, NewcastleDo you live in the north east of England? Would you like to use your writing skills to benefit young people?

New Writing North is developing a number of writing projects involving young people. “We will be working with a range of groups including those who are already interested in writing, young people who have never been involved in creative projects before, and ‘harder to reach’ young people, or specific communities of interest.”

It’s a great opportunity to get out from behind your laptop and encourage new generations to play with words!

If you’re interested, send an email to laura@newwritingnorth.com and let her know you’re keen to work on projects with young people. If you have a specific area of interest, or have limited availability, make that clear too.

You’ll need to include your CV, detailing your writing history, publication or production history, and any other relevant work.

Ideally, for practicalities sake, your should be based within easy travelling distance of the North East  – ie Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Teeside and Durham.

Good luck! If you pursue this venture please let them know you found out about it on SkyLightRain.com. Thank you!
