Are you aged between 13 and 17 and love to write?
The first series of Wild Words sessions for young writers in Leitrim took place in Spring 2021 with 12 participants. You can read some of the writing they produced here.
Wild Words Young Writers is an exciting new project for young people in Leitrim aged 13 – 17.
Developed by Leitrim County Council’s Arts and Library Services, the programme of fun, creative sessions with professional writers provides a space for developing writers to learn and try new approaches to their writing.
While the programme is primarily designed for all those teenagers in Leitrim that love creative writing to come together in one space, it may have additional significance for those that want to hone their creative writing skills for exams that they may be sitting in the next couple of years.
Following this Spring 2021 series of workshops, the project will continue in Autumn 2021 and once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, workshops will be held in real venues as well as on-line when in addition to the writing workshops themselves, the group will also have the opportunity to publish their own work, to have renowned authors visit as guest tutors and to organise and take part in reading events for young people.
