New group for young writers

Aspiring young writers who would enjoy meeting and working with like-minded young folk are invited to join a new group. Hastings Young Writers set out their stall.

Young people who live in Hastings and St Leonards can now join a new group for young writers. Hastings Young Writers meets at the White Rock Hotel every two weeks to write and discuss projects and competitions. The group is open to young people aged 11-17, and currently includes both those who attend school and those who are home-educated.

The group has been set up by Liz Caluori, a member of Hastings Writers Group.

It is currently collaborating on a joint writing project. Members of the group also write individually and get a chance to share their work. They were recently visited by the group’s  patron, Kate O’Hearn, author of the Pegasus series.

“It’s awesome that young people in Hastings now have a chance to share their writing and meet others who want to do the same,” said member Esme Needham. “Everyone has different interests – we’ve had fantasy, poetry, history and horror – and the meetings are really fun.”
