WoW Young Writers
WoW Young Writers is an online creative writing group for young people aged 10-15 years old here in Liverpool. Our group meet weekly on Zoom to explore all aspects of creative writing from Rap & Spoken word to scripts & poetry, creating new pieces of work alongside WoW staff and professional artists.
The young people have the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and discuss issues they may be facing and have their say on the world around them in a creative and supportive environment.
Funded by the Youth Endowment Fund the project has been set up to support young people who are most at risk of being drawn into crime or criminal activity in their area.
Where: On Zoom
When: Wednesday nights 6-8pm
