Calling all Spoken Word Artists,
Creative Writers, MCs and Poets!
The twelve-week project, Word Up, aims to offer development and support to young and emerging writers in a wide range of fields. From flash fiction to spoken word and performance poetry, each session will provide a creative platform for young writers to sharpen their craft in a supportive and engaging environment. Young writers will be encouraged to develop their own voice and style, leading to a live performance showcase for the writers to demonstrate their skills to an audience.
Word Up co-ordinator, Nikki Blaze, says:
'Word Up, is a 12 week writing project hosted by Writing on the Wall. From ages 12-22, the project is open to all creative writers: poets, story writers, song writers, script writers and lyricists. This will give each participant the chance to explore their inner creative side and take their writing ability to another level. In May there will be a performance in the WOW festival, giving the group a chance to showcase their work.'
