Oswestry Junior group for 2024-25

This group is aimed at young people in school years 3 – 6 (aged 7 – 11). 

Led by a professional writer with an assistant writer, the group will meet in Oswestry Library from 1.30 – 3.30pm one Saturday per month on the following Saturdays:

Saturday 7th September 2024
Saturday 5th October
Saturday 23rd November
Saturday 7th December
Saturday 25th January 2025
Saturday 1st February 
Saturday 1st March
Saturday 5th April
No May session
Saturday 7th June
Saturday 5th July

The sessions cost £10 for a taster session, or £9 per session when booked for all remaining sessions. You can choose to pay in one lump sum or pay by monthly recurring card payments. 

Please note, we encourage young people to join one group for the year, as getting to know their fellow group members is an important part of developing as a writer. Advance booking is essential.

We are pleased to be able to offer free places to those who receive free school meals or pupil premium funding at school. You can see our bursary policy here. Please contact us with any queries.

The young people will need to bring:

A notebook or some paper
A pen or pencil to write with
A snack and a drink, if they want one
