Fighting Words Belfast runs free creative writing workshops for children and young people aged 6 to 18. Workshops take place online, in schools, The Skainos Centre (our centre in east Belfast), and the Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts in north Belfast.
And we are not alone. There are Fighting Words centres across Ireland as well as the International Alliance of Youth Writing Centres working across the globe, in a shared vision to create transformative writing opportunities for young people wherever they are.
School and youth groups set out on a story-writing journey with trained volunteer mentors, working at first collaboratively and then individually to create new stories. Contact us if you would like to find out more or get involved locally.
