Young People’s Writing Squads new website
The Young People’s Writing Squads have been developed over the past decade by Academi in association with the local authorities in Wales. They aim to locate gifted young writers – in both English and Welsh – in each authority region and introduce them to some of Wales’ leading writers and teachers of writing. The brand new website offers information in one place about the Writing Squads and is aimed at Squad members, organisers, teachers, parents, writers or anyone interested in the Squads. The website holds information on what squads are and what they do, where they are and how they work. There is an overview of writers who have worked with squads and there are many examples of work from squad members.
