A new creative writing project for children and young people in Northern Ireland.

Fighting Words Belfast runs free creative writing workshops for children and young people aged 6 to 18.  Workshops take place primarily in Skainos, east Belfast, as well as the Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts in north Belfast.   School and youth groups set out on a story-writing journey with trained volunteer mentors, working at first collaboratively and then individually to create new stories. All participants leave as published writers with their own illustrated storybook.

The project is a sister organisation of Fighting Words Dublin, inspired by 826 Valencia and part of a growing number of creative writing centres around the world. The project is supported by a partnership between Young at Art, Fighting Words Dublin, 174 Trust and Skainos. Its patrons are the acclaimed writers Glenn Patterson, Roddy Doyle, Nick Hornby and Dave Eggers. The project is supported by The Ireland Funds.
