Creative Writing for Youth

[common room]: Creative Writing

Have you always wanted to be a poet/novelist/screen writer/song writer? Come to these meet-ups for creative youth, get inspired, and write something new!

[common room] takes place every Friday during term-time. Occasionally guest writers and publishers will visit to answer your questions on getting published. Check out our event on Facebook for updates.

If you are in intermediate or high school, interested in creative writing, and want a space to share your ideas, get some advice or just hang out with like-minded people, we’d love to see you there!

War Memorial Library Fridays, 4:30-6pm (does not run during the school holidays)


[common room]: Warhammer

Learn how to assemble and paint a Warhammer model. You’ll end up with a completed model to keep and use in table-top and role-playing games!

This event is for youth ages 11+. If you are younger than 11 and want to come you need to bring an adult with you: they will be asked to help build your model.

A big thank you to Games Workshop: Lower Hutt for making these sessions possible!

War Memorial Library 14 & 15 January, 2pm

Eastbourne Community Library 22 & 23 January, 2pm
