Course

Writing your World (workshop for 13-17 year olds)

Wednesday 27 October
National Centre for Writing, Dragon Hall
11am - 1.30pm
£5 (bursaries available)

Some of your best storytelling ideas will come from the things you see, hear and experience around you. In this friendly group workshop for 13 – 17 year olds, we will share experiences and draw inspiration from our favourite places – including Norwich, the surrounding countryside and beyond! 

  • Look and listen to poems about Norwich and other cities
  • Try quick-fire writing and play writing games
  • Talk about different landscapes, events and landmarks and how they can be used in your writing
  • Start working on a new poem which talks about the world around you
  • Meet other like-minded young writers and collaborate creatively together.

If you have a passion for writing of any kind, we want you to join us!

Don’t worry if this is your first time doing a writing workshop – we’re a friendly, informal bunch and you can share your writing as much or as little as you like.

Places are limited to 10 participants – please book in advance to secure your seat.

Please note: Parents and guardians are not expected to stay for the workshop – Dragon Hall is located a short walk from the city centre and is surrounded by shops and coffee shops. If the attendee has needs which require additional support, please book an essential companion ticket.
