Cool writing programme for Teens

Your story matters. Write your story now.

WCL has set up a ‘virtual classroom’ for teens who are in isolation. Programme administrator Stephen says, “This time in lockdown is particularly worrying and isolating for teenagers and I thought this would be a nice way of keeping them connected with each other and the library”.

Stephen and his colleague Catherine are keen to extend the invitation to teens not just from Wellington, but around New Zealand.  Up to 100 teens can participate at a time and a second classroom can be set up if there is enough interest.

"We have about 30 teens who have joined so far, and we’ve got a couple of NZ YA authors lined up to do some cool events with us as well".

Wellington City Libraries online creative writing ‘virtual classroom’ for the international NaNoWriMo Young Writers’ Programme. is for teen writers to work collectively towards writing goals, and ultimately, to write a novel during the month of November.
