True Stories! summer camp

True Stories! summer camp 2023
In Partnership with Tenx9

This year, we have a brilliant opportunity for aspiring storytellers in Northern Ireland. We are looking for twelve teenagers aged 13-16, from all around Northern Ireland, to take part in a unique storytelling experience. 

Writer & storyteller Paul Hutchinson will lead a four-day exploration of autobiographical writing. No  experience is required to take part – curiosity and a willingness to unearth and share the stories you want to tell is all you need.

The camp will culminate with a public story-telling event in partnership with Tenx9 in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. This will be a Fighting Words NI, Tenx9, and a Belfast first.
