A hearty congratulations to Ciah White, one of our Year 13 students, on winning the Young Northern Writer’s Award 2019.
“The Northern Writers’ Awards is an innovative and progressive talent development programme, which supports writers to achieve their creative ambitions at all stages of their careers. This year the awards attracted over 1,200 entries. The awards recognise unpublished work-in-progress by new and established writers in the North of England.
The Northern Writers’ Awards are produced by New Writing North with funding from Arts Council England and support from Northumbria University, Channel 4 and North East Chamber of Commerce.”
She has been a frequent participant in Hive’s writing sessions at The Point aimed at young writers and has written a short play that Delanté Détras Theatre Company hope to produce in the next few months.
Well done Ciah!
