Younger Young Writers’ Program

The Younger Young Writers’ Program has been created specifically for writers aged 13 to 17 who possess a passion and talent for writing in all its forms. The YYWP runs separately from the main festival, with sessions and workshops directly catered to high school students.

The full YYWP Program 2017 is out now! This year, we’re running three separate streams:

A: Becoming a writer

B: Making media

C: Advanced fiction

You are welcome to come along to just one, or dive into all three if you like! Get more information and enrol here, or email
