Young People’s Laureate for London Cecilia Knapp offers free workshops for young people aged 16 – 25

Opportunities

For 16 – 25 year olds, Young People’s Laureate for London Cecilia Knapp is running free monthly online workshops. Cecilia invites you to join her in a low-pressure, safe, creative environment to begin writing. Take some time for yourself to experience the fun, discovery and connection with yourself that a writing workshop can allow. Whether you’re new to writing or more experienced, there’ll be something for you to try to help you out. You don’t need to be able to attend the whole series, but you are welcome to sign up for all the sessions if you’d like.
All sessions have auto-captions and BSL Interpretation. Please get in touch if you need any additional support in order to access the workshops.
