Young Writers Anthology

Launched in 2011, Young Writers is a group for those aged 12 to 18 who love to write, get inspired and learn. For the past ten years, they have joined together and enjoyed writing sessions led by our experienced workshop leaders and guest hosts to develop their own writing.

From poetry to prose, song writing to playwriting, monologues to short stories, Young Writers have covered an array of artforms and genres. Beyond the act of writing, sessions have also covered performance skills and breathing exercises, giving young people the confident to perform their work and take their writing to the stage.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Young Writers, we asked current members, alumni and workshop leaders past and present to join together to contribute to an anthology, Words Hanging Off Trees. The anthology is a collection of poetry and prose, featuring 25 young writers. Available to pre-order now, it covers topics such as identity, love, fictional creatures, and so much more.
