We are now recruiting for our next Squad. The two year programme will run from April 2020.
To be eligible you must be aged between 16 and 21 and live, work or study in the North of England.
If you are wondering whether the current situation will affect your application the answer is no, we enjoy meeting up but we are also a virtual organisation – so we are well equipped and looking forward to working with you.
The Writing Squad is a group of motivated writers. We exist to help you develop your writing. Being part of the Squad is FREE and we work round your life so you can study, work or travel at the same time.
The Squad will provide you with
- one to one support on whatever you are writing
- workshops led by professional writers
- opportunities to work on projects
- supportive community of writers and artists
- professional development advice and support
You can find out more about our programme here and how to apply.
On our website you can also meet some of the writers from previous Squads and take at look at all the places they have been published, produced and broadcast, where they work.
DEADLINE FOR WRITING SQUAD APPLICATIONS IS SUNDAY 29 MARCH 2020
