Some of the students in our Young Writers’ City at Excelsior project have had their poems – inspired by Newcastle – published on 200 Stagecoach North East buses for all the whole city to enjoy.
Our young writers produced a series of thoughtful, evocative and striking poems inspired by being a young person in their home city. The collaboration with Stagecoach led to their hard work being showcased on posters across its entire fleet of buses in Newcastle.
The project has been a huge success, with plenty of proud family and friends taking to the bus routes to catch a glimpse our young writers’ debut publication.
Young Writers’ City is a branch of New Writing North’s young people programmes, reaching across the North to help develop the talent of young writers. Read more about this project here.
