Regional Workshops

Regional Workshops are for anyone in Year 12 or Year 13, and are held on Saturdays at Universities.  You don’t need to have had a workshop through your school to be eligible.

The workshops bring together 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. Regional workshops are 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
