Young Voices

Young Voices is a series of five creative writing workshops for Year Six pupils and teachers and for Youth Justice Service teams. The workshops take place throughout January and February and will be facilitated by a team of six experienced professional writers. Schools around Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are taking part. The programme will develop the confidence and writing skills of students, as well as celebrate their progress by publishing and sharing their best work at the 'Celebrating MyVoice' in March 2020.
