Spark Young Writers Summer School 2018

July 30, 2018 @ 9:30 am - August 3, 2018 @ 3:30 pm


Are you – or do you know – a young person (school years 7 – 12, aged 12 – 17) who loves writing or wants to be a writer?

We’re running our Spark Young Writers’ Summer School again this July/August, especially for writers like you.

Come and join us on Monday 30th July – Friday 3rd August for five days of writing, performing, playing with words, meeting other young (and not-so-young) writers and learn to be the writer you want to be. The Spark Summer School is run by poet Liz Berry and poet and writer Paul McDonald.

We’ll dabble in lots of different types of writing, from poetry to radio plays to flash fiction to wordplay, and we’ll finish the week with a special performance for your friends and family.

The Summer School is every day from 10.30am – 3.30pm at the University of Wolverhampton with the option of an hour of quiet writing from 9.30am. Please note lunch is not included.
