Writing Wrongs Schools Programme

The Writing Wrongs 2024 logo

Are you eager to enhance your writing abilities?

Perhaps you're contemplating a future as a professional writer?

Are you passionate about tackling human rights and injustice?

We are inviting students in Years 12 and 13 to take part in our innovative Writing Wrongs workshops. You can get personalized guidance from professional writers and experienced academics who will empower you to craft your own compelling piece of writing on a social issue close to your heart. There will be a chance to meet other young writers and we'll assist you in submitting your work to writing competitions where you can potentially win prizes!

The Writing Wrongs initiative is delivered by the School of Law and Department of English at the University of Warwick.

What is involved?

    • 3 days of workshops led by professional writers, journalists and academics.
    • Exposure to a range of writing styles and formats.
    • Support in producing your own piece of writing with extensive 1:1 feedback from an academic or professional writer.
    • Celebration event with certificates and prizes, including the opportunity for the winner of the best piece of writing to see their work published in the University of Warwick’s Lacuna Magazine and gain a paid internship with the magazine in Summer 2024.
    • Speak to current students about university life.
    • Make your university application for Law, English or Social Sciences stand out.
