Readings and workshops are given and led by award-winning writers and Workshop topics include comic books, illustration, picture storybooks, writing and reading poetry, devising plots and inventing characters.  

In 2020, due to COVID-19, we were able to provide a reduced Children & YA Programme with all events occurring online.
