Fighting Words NI are looking for volunteer mentors and illustrators to help facilitate their programme of creative writing workshops for primary, post-primary, and community groups.
Their fun and imagination-focused workshops include collaborative and individual writing, and the writing mentors are passionate about helping young writers to explore their creative potential.
If you are a great listener who enjoys working in a creative environment, then this is for you. Our students can sign up to receive this free training to become a Fighting Words mentor. Whether you go on to join the mentorship programme or not, the training will be hugely valuable for any work with young audiences.
