This event is part of the Younger Young Writers’ Program. The Younger Young Writers’ Program is for creatives who are passionate about writing. The YYWP runs separately from the main festival, with sessions and workshops directly catered to teenagers.

Register for YYWP

Our festival is 100% free. It’s always free. But as part of our Child Safe policy, we need to make sure all under-18s are attending with guardians. Make sure you sign up for this program!

Can you support YYWP?

During registration, you’ll see an opportunity to buy a YYWP supporter ticket. If you love our festival, we encourage to help support this event and our festival by becoming an YYWP supporter. The “ticket” doesn’t get you into anything extra, it’s a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of this program and our festival overall: which is 100% free to attend!
