What is it?
Wigtownshire Young Writers is our writer development programme for young people aged 14-18, living in Wigtownshire. We invite you to explore your ideas and support you to develop your skills, work with authors, poets & storymakers, create, share & showcase your work and meet other young writers in the area.

Why should I join?
Every year our young people's portfolio grows with more new and exciting opportunities for writers and readers at every stage of their journey. Young people get involved with Wigtown Festival Company for all kinds of reasons, some are looking to develop a career in the arts whilst others are looking to build their writing skills. Other young people join for the social aspect, to meet new friends and learn new skills.

Is it for me?
All of our work for 13-26 year olds is completely free of charge, this programme doesn't require any experience and Imogen, the group facilitator will work with you to help you achieve your desired outcomes.
