Wokingham Library Teen Writing Group - Igniting Writing

Igniting Writing is a creative writing club for 11-18 year-olds to develop their storytelling and writing skills in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Writing can be seen as a solitary activity, so it's a great opportunity for teens to come together and write as a group, share their imaginative story ideas with others and build friendships with other young aspiring writers.

Sessions are held on Saturday mornings, 10:30am to 12noon, and focus on a different aspect of writing every week, from creating characters and settings to exploring genres like sci-fi, fantasy and beyond. Roughly once a month Igniting Writing also hosts ‘guest speaker’ sessions, where local authors, poets, journalists and other people experienced in the world of writing come and share their knowledge and advice – it’s a chance to get the inside scoop from the pros!

If you want to see what our Igniting Writing members have said about the group, have a look at the testimonials below:

Ruth Lucas, pupil at St Crispins School: "The Igniting Writing sessions have helped inspire me and build my confidence. After speaking to a friend I made at the group, I've started publishing some of my writing online on Wattpad."

James Balmer, pupil at St Crispins School: "I like that the group brings together lots of creative people like me. The sessions encourage motivation and spawn a lot of creative ideas that everyone can develop in their writing."

Nat Lory, pupil at St Bartholomew’s School: "Igniting Writing is definitely more relaxed than school - I love to let loose and write without restrictions and the group members are really open and accepting to any newcomers. It's great for helping you to turn ideas into something more coherent." 

Harry Dean, pupil at Reading School: "Each week is something different, which has helped push me out of my comfort zone by writing about things I'd never have considered otherwise. I enjoy the guest speaker sessions too, because you get to hear some different writing styles and voices."
