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.
Groups are open to young writers aged 8-17 who are interested in any type of creative writing.
Updated weekly, our free story starters created by writers across the region will get you writing in new and exciting ways.
During lockdown in spring 2020, we asked professional writers to upload short clips of writing prompts you can do from home.
