Come to a regional workshop

Regional Workshops are for anyone in Year 12 or Year 13. You don’t need to have had a workshop through your school to be eligible.

The workshops will bring together 40 young people interested in writing and current affairs to hear from professional renowned writers about writing techniques. You’ll get one-to-one feedback on your work, too. The day is free and bursaries towards the cost of travel to the workshop are available.

The workshops have five elements:

  1. Hearing from professional and renowned writers about writing techniques
  2. Exploring this year’s theme with writers, academics and others
  3. Meeting and working with other young people passionate about political writing
  4. Visiting a university, finding out more about university life
  5. The opportunity to discuss feedback on your draft entry

Our regional workshops for the academic year 2016-2017 are over. Next year’s regional workshops are being held in:
