Write What’s Next

Write What’s Next is WoW’s latest writing development course for young people.

Coming August 2021!

Are you an emerging writer aged 18-25? Do you want to be? Need some free mentoring from a professional writer? What about a space to upskill or explore what’s important to you? Write What’s Next is the course for you!

We are in the middle of a pandemic, times are confusing, and options appear limited for many people looking for work. And what we know for sure is that young people, aged 18-25 years, have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.

Write What’s Next will provide free mentoring support and creative writing masterclasses for fifteen young people. We’ll help develop your writing skills, gain the practical experience you need AND create brand new work.

Over 16 weeks you’ll work alongside your writing mentor, creative professionals and other emerging artists to focus on making your way into the arts become a reality. With workshops from masters on spoken word, playwrighting, fiction writing, writing for audio and more you’ll be able to improve your area of expertise but also learn new skills from different writers.

To be eligible to apply you must be unemployed, between 18-25 years old, eligible to live and work in the UK and be currently living in the LCR (excluding Halton). With it being an online course, you will need access to the internet. Open to writers of all writing ability with the strong commitment to pursue their writing and develop skills which will support them to take their next steps into further education or employment.
