Bookings are now closed for this year’s Den, but if you’d like to join our young writers’ mailing list to hear about the next Den, please email email@example.com
An exciting non-residential creative writing retreat for 9-14 year olds!
We had an amazing time at Derby University in 2015, so we’re coming back in 2016 and this time we’re excited to be part of Derby Book Festival!
We’ll be bringing some of your favourite Den tutors back with us, and mixing it up with some shiny new ones too! You can join us for both days or just one and you’ll get the chance to flex your imaginations and develop your skills across a range of forms including fiction, poetry, comics and journalism.
And as well as the usual raft of workshops led by some of the best writers in their field that you’ve come to expect from the Writer’s Den, we’re really excited to be able to invite you and your families back at the end of each day to enjoy a performance by some of the writers involved. More information on this to follow as plans develop – watch this space!
Here’s what they said about the Writer’s Den last year:
“Definitely go because it’s really fun!”
“We met new people, learned a lot and had fun!”
“Really great for improving your skills and trying new types of writing”
“It was amazing and so much fun”
