Writing squads at Hereford Library

Could you be the next JK Rowling or Jacqueline Wilson? If you want to try something new in 2012 and you love writing why not join one of Herefordshire Council’s Write On! Writing Squads.

These groups, based at the council’s Hereford Library, are for young people interested in creative writing of any kind from poems, plays, stories, songs to texts and tweets.

The Writing Squad is led by professional writer Brenda Read-Brown and takes place on Saturdays once a month at Hereford Library and this year the squads will be making a film with the Rural Media Company about what it’s like to be in a writing group.

Anne-Marie Dossett, Herefordshire Council’s reader development librarian, said: “The group is very excited about working with the Rural Media Company, they have written some brilliant and imaginative things during 2011. There is still plenty of room for other young people to join in.”

The sessions will take place on Saturdays 28th Jan, 25th Feb, 24th March, 28th April, 26th May and 16th June.  For ages 8-12 sessions are 11am- 1pm and for 12-16 year olds from 2pm- 4pm.

Sessions cost £5 and people can book their place by contacting Joanne Penn on 0121 246 2774 or emailing
