Show Information


ArtfulScribe and Mayflower Theatre are inviting young people to get online with a free exciting creative project that will help develop skills, confidence, and experience of a writer’s life.

Participants will explore creative writing through workshops on topics like characterisation, dialogue, setting and plot. Writers will work across genres including non-fiction, fiction, poetry and script-writing.

Sessions will take place online on a weekly basis, on Saturday mornings during term-times. These sessions are free but we are looking for commitment. Places are limited, please register your interest below. All workshops are suitable for beginners and advanced writers.

Group 1: Ages 11 to 14
Time: 9am - 10.45am

Group 2: Ages 15 to 18
Time: 11am - 1pm

Location: Online

We will run these online interactive sessions through Zoom. We appreciate that this may provoke a new set of considerations so have created an online safety document  which will hopefully guide you through any concerns. At least one member of Mayflower Engage will be present for the full duration.

If you would like to be involved please follow the below link to register your place. Once complete you will be sent a Zoom link where you can join the session on Saturday. We will welcome new participants to the group as always so if you know someone that may be interested please send them the link to the registration form below.

AGES 11 - 14
AGES 15 - 18

We will ONLY send the Zoom link to participants who have registered. Once you have the link please do not pass on to anyone else.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you soon!
