Writing West Midlands - Spark Young Writers newsletter

With news and updates, here is the Writing West Midlands Spark Young Writers newsletter:

News and updates
Spark Young Writer Magazine
There is still time to submit a piece for Issue 14 of Spark Young Writers Magazine will be published in April 2018. 
Our April 2018 issue is going to include pieces written by young people from other European countries as part of our involvement with the Read On Creative Europe project. Unusually for this magazine, this issue will have a theme. The theme is “No more borders: exploring, sharing and celebrating our differences” – we are looking for poems, short stories, prose – any kind of creative writing as long as it is your own and is no longer than 500 words. You can submit up to 3 pieces of your creative writing.
Spark Young Writers 2018-19
We are just finalising venues for 2018-19 and parents will be contacted in late April / early May to renew places for the next academic year.
If your young people are interested in signing up, watch our social media networks for information about when booking opens online.
Spark Awards Ceremony
We are pleased to be able to invite young writers who are part of our Spark Young Writers groups to come to our annual awards ceremony. We are pleased to be back at the Bramall Music Building, University of Birmingham on the afternoon of 30th June. More information will follow, but do put the date in your diary! Entry is free - friends and family are welcome.
