WRITING SQUAD KERNOW 2014-15

The Writing Squad Kernow is a group of talented, enthusiastic, committed young writers aged between thirteen and nineteen from across Cornwall.  The group is managed by Kernow Education Arts Partnership (KEAP) and the lead writer is poet, playwright, short story writer and cultural creator Annamaria Murphy who works regularly for BBC Radio, Kneehigh, Rogue Theatre, c-scape dance and The Story Republic.

The aim of the group is to create an environment in which creative writing is the norm and where the young writers have the chance write in a variety of genres and work with a range of different writers.  We are also very linked up with Cornish cultural events and activities and we seek commissions for the young writers so that they are writing for a purpose and also that their work is being seen by a wider audience.

This year the writing squad will be meeting several times in the year and taking part in half and full day activities.  Each session will involve workshops with professional writers and the work is often read or performed as part of local festivals and events.

We will be recruiting in September 2015 for new members to take us into the following year.
