Writing & Talking Saturday Club Taster Day

, Manchester Met Benzie Building (School of Art)

Manchester Writing School Writing & Talking Saturday Club Taster Day

This is an exciting opportunity for young people to develop and learn new skills, make new friends and enhance their personal/professional development in creative writing.

We are looking to recruit up to 25 young people (aged 14-16, year 9-11) to take part in our pilot. As this is a new initiative and we want young people to have a say in shaping and leading the programme, we are hosting a Taster Day on Saturday 17th March, 10.30-1pm, where young people can find out more about the types of activity we would like to offer. Come along, meet our tutors and students and have your say about what our Manchester Writing and Talking Saturday Club should look like.

Free but booking is essential. Book via EventBrite.

Parents/carers are welcome to attend a separate information session on the same day to find out more about the scheme. Please add your details to your child’s booking if you would like to know more.
