Monthly creative writing classes for 11-16 year olds brimming with ideas and stories. Each session will have a different theme and be led by Cornish writers Olivia Lowry and Casey Bottono.

Who’s it for?
Any young writer aged 11-16 years.  All you need is curiosity, a willingness to have a go and a notebook and pen.

This masterclass is for writers aged 11-18 years. Poet and Spoken Word artist Rebecca Tantony will lead you on a journey with writing your own spoken word or poetry pieces.

Her work has been published in Magma and Mslexia and her projects Seventeen and Singing My Mother’s Song were both funded by the Arts Council, UK.

In 2017 and 2018 Rebecca taught Creative Writing at Bath Spa University and BA and MA students at Wits University, Johannesburg. She has read her work in numerous venues, including the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum, Southbank Centre and in Romania, Turkey, Sweden, South Africa and America.
