LL Teen Writers

Lowestoft Library Teen Writing Group meets every first Wednesday of the month, in the library cafe.  We meet for an hour, between 5pm and 6pm, and it's completely free.  All you need is a note pad, a pen, and some creativity and imagination.  We write and talk and share ideas and offer help and encouragement.

If you're aged 11-18 years old and are interested in joining the group, send me an e-mail at rebeccah.giltrow@suffolklibraries.co.uk or just turn up on the night.
