On Sat 27th July our team of young writers, Writing Squad Kernow hosted two events in The Story Republic. The first was Early Bedtime Stories for young children and then  stories for older children and adults, Afterhours.

The writers loved the idea of being in the gallery once it had closed, there is something eerie and secret with another level of intrigue.

The event went very well with some of the WSK members making their stories into beautiful handmade books to be sold – in fact some sold out!

We are recruiting for the Writing Squad 2013-14 with an open taster session at Truro Library on Saturday 28 Sept from 10-1pm.

The Squad is open to enthusiastic young writers aged 13-19. We meet on a monthly basis from September to July on a Saturday. Our usual venue is Truro Library but we do go all over Cornwall. The lead writer is Anna maria Murphy and we also have visiting writers to lead workshops in their specialisms and also focus on particular projects. This year we have been commissioned by The Source FM Radio to writer bedtime stories.

There is a fee of £30 for the year but bursaries are available as we would not want this to exclude anyone.

For further information and booking on the taster session please contact Amanda Harris [email protected] or 01872 275187
