Youngsters' Work Is on Write Lines


Byline: By Nicola Juncar

Summer work by talented young people across the region has resulted in an anthology which has just been published.

Over the summer, 11 to 18-year-olds put pen to paper to create poems, short stories and scripts.

Monkey Business has been compiled by New Writing North, a writing development agency for the North East which looks out for new talent.

It held the Orange Young Writers' Festival at various venues, including Alnwick and Hexham, in Northumberland, and the Gala Theatre, in Durham City.

The aim was to provide a month of free creative writing courses to help develop the skills of budding young authors, poets and scriptwriters.

The workshops were run by 14 professional writers working in fiction, poetry, drama and screenplay.

The festival was attended by more than 100 young people.

The professional writers included award-winning author Celia Bryce, from Whitley Bay, and Margaret Almond, of Ferryhill, County Durham.

Celia's work is in numerous anthologies and magazines, as well as being broadcast on radio and adapted for the stage.
