Get Creative

We’re missing seeing you at our monthly sessions. So, we’ve asked our lead writers to come up with some ideas of things that you can do.

Let us know how you get on! And don’t forget that you can submit your writing (500 words or less) to our magazine. Click here to find out how.

Get Writing

If you’d like to submit a piece of your writing for possible inclusion in the magazine, please see the Get Involved page to see more details. This magazine is published online three times a year: summer (June/July), winter (October-December) and spring (February-April) terms.

With 22 groups across the West Midlands, including 2 online-only groups, there will be a Spark Young Writers group near you.
