This year, the grand finale of the Wakefield Writers Festival will be Celebrating Youth Writing! So far, 15 youth have signed up to showcase their work in a chapbook and/or in front of an audience at the Centre Wakefield La Pêche on May 15th. We have volunteered to support these young writers as they prepare for the big event, but the festival needs more mentors!
If you would like to help a young writer as he/she works on a piece of writing for the festival, please let us know. You would need to be available for a meeting on Sunday, April 10. Then, for the next two weeks, you will be asked to read your mentee's writing and provide any help she/he may need. This can be done over the phone or by email.
