Writing West Midlands is part of an EU funded project that aims to encourage teenagers to read and write creatively. They have produced a website www.readon.eu that young people can sign up to, post book reviews, speak to authors for advice and inspiration and post their own fan fiction and is free to join! It opens the door to an online community of teen readers from all over Europe.
Writing West Midlands also releases a magazine three times a year and young people are invited to submit their writing (500 words) for a chance to have their work appear in the magazine. If a piece of writing is not included in the magazine, a professional author will read over it and feedback will be given with hints and tips on how to improve your writing.
