On Monday 21 August between 2 and 4pm in Central Milton Keynes Library, MK Lit Fest is running the fourth in a series of free workshops for local 14-18 year olds as part of the Festival's new Community Programme.

The workshops are designed to:

  • give an insight into careers involving writing and publishing

  • help develop creativity and writing skills

  • prepare for future volunteering opportunities at the festival to develop confidence and transferable skills to build up CVs.

The Festival is dedicated to fostering a love for literature, writing, and all things word-related, to empowering people to explore publishing, writing, screenwriting, poetry - and to promote the vibrant local literary scene in Milton Keynes. Their ambition is to create a space where young people can be inspired, collaborate with each other and create a real community of young writers.

Each week, a local writer will lead a talk about how to get into literary careers in different fields. We’ll be exploring publishing, fiction, short stories, political writing, memoir, screenwriting, and poetry. For the coming week, we'll be welcoming local lyricist, songwriter and musician, Manny Admeolu, who many of you will not doubt have seen performing - including at the IF Festival - as Manny and the Coloured Sky.
