Teen South West and South East time changes consultation

We are proposing to split the Teen South East and Teen South West groups by time, instead of by geography.

We are trying to offer more flexibility to enable more young people to participate. We anticipate eventually offering four groups to cover the south of our region.

Please indicate your preferences below

The morning session is likely to be run by Aoife Mannix and the afternoon session is likely to be run by Ken Preston.

To help us contact you with your offer of a group

Thank you for your patience as we work out a way of running the sessions that accommodates as many of our young writers as possible.

We are still aiming to get back to in-person sessions as soon as possible, but these may run in parallel at least to start with.

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.
