On Saturday we had our penultimate meeting for this year. That’s me, Kidderminster Young Writers and our assistant writer Nicholas Tulloch. Everyone arrived with a bagful of papers, more or less fully constructed into a zine.
The tables vanished under card, paper, tracing paper, staplers, glue, glitter, ribbons and inspiration. Chocolate brownies were ingested, for stamina.
“I’ve decided to do creative risk”, said John.
The zines were to be finished and left with Kidderminster Library, all ready to be displayed on Saturday 18 June, when at 11am this absolutely brilliant group of young people will be bringing their work to the public in the library in a stream of pop-up performances. Everyone welcome. And it’s free.
We practised with the mic. And we were good.
Kidderminster Write On! Young Writers is one of the many young writers’ groups created and managed by Writing West Midlands and spread right across the region.
Here’s a sneak preview of the gorgeous zines to go into the display cabinet.
