Staffordshire Junior groups

We’re delighted to introduce three new creative writing groups, working in partnership with Staffordshire Libraries. These groups are for children aged 8 – 11, or in school years 3 – 6 and start in January 2024. 

Each group will be led by a professional writer, who will introduce the young writers to lots of different styles of writing, and inspire them with fun creative writing activities at each session.

If your child is in secondary/high school, we also have groups meeting in Stoke Library and Burton on Trent Library – these are listed below.

Is your child in school Year 7 or above? Check out our other local groups here  →
