‘New Narratives for the North East’ Young Writers Commissions Programme

What does the North East mean to you? How can writers shape the future of the North East? Our ambitious new commissioning project seeks to find out. 

In early 2020, we will commission two new pieces of work from young writers (aged 12-18) living in the North East, to tell us about the region from their perspective. 

We are asking young writers to think about what the North East means to them; what happens in the region now, what has happened in the past and what might its future story be? With each piece of writing we want to find a unique perspective on the North East.

Writing can be submitted in any written form (poetry, stories, non-fiction) and the two selected winners will get the opportunity to be mentored by a professional writer in order to develop their work for publication as one of our New Narratives for the North East.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
