The Junior Writers Club first began in 2010, with four children, who met each week to share their love of writing.
We have grown to run two groups: The Junior writers club for ages nine to twelve and Creative Ink, for ages twelve to sixteen.

Since then we have produced four books. The most recent of which 'Whispers from the Shelf' was published in December and is now available to purchase on the Lulu market place and Amazon.

The writers groups' provide a friendly environment to meet others who share a love of writing.
We explore different themes, techniques and writing styles. The participants take part in imagination games and writing challenges.

The young writers are encouraged to hand in their creations to be put forward for publication in our end of term book. The New Leaf authors receive guidance and constructive advice in the editing of their work, and each piece of work is submitted to a professional proof reader (free of charge) prior to publication.

Each term we have a visit from an industry professional, we've been lucky enough to meet with Kayleigh Little, a BBC employee who taught us about writing for television. We met with Edward Nevill, a play wright who helped us write our own scripts. We've even had a visit from Peter Satera who taught us about computer animation.

The purpose of the writers groups, are to challenge the children, encourage their imaginations and most importantly, to have fun!

The writers clubs, which are run by Susan Kirkwood, and assisted by Dionne Doherty, meet each week to explore a new topic or technique, with an underlying theme to tie the term together.

The Clubs run out of Abbey Books, located at 2 Well street Paisley.

Junior Writers Club (ages 9 - 12): 10:30 am - 11:30am
Creative Ink (ages 12 - 16): 11:45am - 12:45pm
