Spark Young Writers also works with more than 40 of the best writers in the West Midlands. They inspire young people with a passion for creative writing at our monthly Spark Young Writers groups.

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.

Join a Group

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.

Follow our Story Starters

Updated weekly, our free story starters created by writers across the region will get you writing in new and exciting ways.

Watch our Get Creative! prompts

During lockdown in spring 2020, we asked professional writers to upload short clips of writing prompts you can do from home.
