Schools and Youth Groups

Fighting Words Belfast run FREE creative writing workshops for children and young people in our bespoke workshop space in the Skainos Centre, Belfast - and now ONLINE.

In a fun two-hour workshop a school or youth group will set out on a story writing journey, working at first collectively and then writing on their own to come up with their own ending to their story. The young person’s creative writing journey will be supported by our trained volunteer mentors who are there to encourage and inspire.

The following workshops are available:


Weekdays 10.00am - 12.00pm (Alternative times may be available.)


Weekdays 10.00am - 12.00pm or 1.30pm - 3.30pm (Alternative times may be available.)


If you have a youth group that would like to take part in an after-schools or weekend workshop let us know and we will arrange a date with you to suit.
