Young Writers

Moniack Mhor runs a powerful programme of creative writing activity for young people living in the Highlands and beyond. Our outreach work takes us into schools, libraries and community centres, delivering high quality workshops and one-to-one mentoring on young people’s doorsteps.

We also target our efforts, making sure we reach those who don’t usually get easy access or the support to take part in what are sometimes termed educational-extras. Much of our delivery is in partnership, working with other creative learning bodies to provide activities that cross art form and education boundaries, providing rich, multi-disciplinary experiences.

At the centre, we also run residential courses for young writers. As on our core programme, established writers provide inspirational workshops and one-to-one tutorials to fire young peoples’ imaginations and hone their literary tools. As well as benefiting from the creative writing aspects of the course, young people make new friends, work together, cook together and get a taste of independent living, gaining great writing skills for self-expression and much more.
