Young Writing East Midlands


Exploring the world word by word.

Do you dream of becoming a famous author, an award-winning journalist, a Hollywood screenwriter or a celebrity slam poet? Or, do you keep a secret diary or a blog and fancy making some new friends?

Take the next step of your writing journey at a Writing East Midlands Young Writers Group. Our groups are all run by professional writers and not only are they fun and friendly, they offer a fantastic introduction to the world of creative writing. Meet other dreamers and explorers and join the East Midlands young writing community.

Come and try fan fiction, short stories, very long stories, poetry, playwriting, hip hop, happy endings and haikus – the list is endless.

As well as regular workshops, young writers take part in summer schools, performances, competitions and receive our e-zine with news, opportunities and work by other young writers like you. Who knows, maybe your work will get published here too?
