WoW Young Writers is an online creative writing group for young people aged 10-15 years old in Liverpool.
The meetings are free and held online, every Wednesday on Zoom, 6pm-8pm, see here.
They explore all aspects of creative writing from rap and spoken word to scripts and 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.
From the 14 October WoW Young Writers have been working with Liverpool trio Rise Athena on a 6 week project.
Rise Athena describe their sound as electronic soundscapes with poetic lyrics. You can read about them in their latest interview with Bido Lito. https://www.bidolito.co.
They are beyond excited to welcome them to WoW Young Writers, where they will be leading a 6-week creative writing project with the group, exploring writing lyrics, telling stories and producing your own work.
WOW Young Writers are looking for new members now! They can also offer a free taster session for your school or youth provision, either in person or online.
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.
