We know that writing can be a form of cathartic release to many, and can be a deeply satisfying medium for journalistic and emotional expression.

We have endeavoured to work directly with young people in the community who are passionate about their writing and who are looking to develop their skills into a potential future career.

Working with established writers, poets and industry professionals we have striven to give these young people the best possible opportunity to realise the
full extent of their literacy ambitions.
