The Writer’s Den
The Writer’s Den is our flagship non-residential creative writing retreat for 9-15 year olds.
A gymnasium for the imagination. Take part in creative writing workshops, performances, competitions and games all delivered by professional writers and designed to keep you inventing and imagining long after the Den closes. You’ll meet lots of other people your age who love writing too and you’ll leave the Den with new friends and new skills.
It’s slightly different every year, but always features amazing professional writers and performers, giving you the chance to learn new things and give different types of writing a go.
