Young Writers’ Summer: Guest writer commissions, New Writing North
Deadline: Wed 8 Jul 2020
As part of our Young Writers’ Summer ‘Write Outside’ programme, we are offering six £250 commissions for guest writers to contribute to our online content for young writers. Open to writers working in any writing form based in the north of England.

The role of guest writer will involve creating a short video (approximately 5 mins) exploring the theme and giving some exercises for young writers to join in with.

You will then be required to contribute to the summer programme in one other way that fits with your skill set – for example, this could be leading an online Zoom workshop with young people, leading a watch-along of a theatre performance or providing written resources for young people to access in their own time.

You may have other thoughts on what you can contribute and so we are keeping this part of the brief flexible to respond to your creative ideas.

We are particularly interested in hearing from people who are underrepresented in current arts and culture. This includes, but is not limited to, writers of colour, disabled writers, LGBTQIA+ and non-binary writers, and working-class writers.
