Hive have teamed up with The Civic Barnsley again and we’re looking for aspiring young writers to join our new monthly group starting this February half term at The Civic Barnsley Civic. Everyone is welcome and you don’t have to think you’re a great writer to attend. You just need any interest in words and a keenness to try something new.

As well as working with supportive professional writers to explore different writing forms through fun exercises that will build your writing confidence, you’ll find out about great local and national opportunities open to young people who write.

We’ll also be working towards a bigger creative project start in the Easter break when we’ll be producing writing (and photography for those interested) to tie in with an exciting new exhibition coming to The Civic Barnsley – Teenage Wildlife: a project exploring 70 years of Barnsley youth culture and teenage experience.

Interested!? Get in touch at
Free, friendly, relaxed and open to all!
