Read On: Spark Young Writers Showcase

We start the day with an exciting showcase of new writing, where young writers from across the West Midlands will share their stories and poems.

Come and hear writing by some of our Spark Young Writers – who meet once a month with a professional writer - but also apply for a chance to perform your work!

Are you aged between 12 and 19 or know someone who is? Apply to be part of the Showcase.

This event is part of the Birmingham Literature Festival's Read On EU Day.

All day, young writers and readers aged 12 to 19 will be performing, presenting, hosting and producing events as part of the Birmingham Literature Festival 2019. The day is presented as part of
Read On EU, a Europe-wide project getting young people across the continent reading and writing.

You can join in from home, too, on the Read On EU
website: upload book reviews and your own stories; get advice on books you might like to read; and chat to authors you admire.
