Every year Cuckoo Young Writers, New Writing North’s young people’s programme, works with hundreds of young people across the North to help them realise their potential. We run a huge variety of programmes for young people aged 12-23, including weekly writing groups, projects and a number of publications.
We develop skills and nurture talent, and also encourage those young people who don’t think of themselves as writers to get involved and have a go. We create environments where young writers can make friends, develop their confidence, try out new things (songwriting, drama, zine-making etc.) and have fun.
