Not only home to the International Media Centre, Falmouth will be hosting a group of young journalists from across Cornwall during the G7 weekend, ready to pick up and report stories of both international and local interest.

Part of Cornwall Council’s Y7 activity, The Writers’ Block has developed this project to bring together a group of 12 young people alongside former head of BBC South West Leo Devine as Editor-in-Chief, sub-editor Olivia Lowry and a team of emerging writers and student journalists from Falmouth University.

The team already have interviews lined up with local councillors, environmental groups, and the Police amongst others. Keep up to date with their stories at and on social media:
