Dates for future Belfast Children's Festival - Add them to your diary now!
A 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 in a bespoke creative writing space in the Skainos Centre in east 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 storybook.
Activity has expanded to deliver 2 weekly Write Clubs throughout the year
Every Tuesday 4.00-6.00pm at Hub Games, suitable for 13-18 years old.
Every Wednesday, 4.00-6.00pm in the Duncairn Centre for Culture & Arts, suitable for 13-18 years old.

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, Lucy Caldwell, Paul Muldoon and Dave Eggers. The project is supported by The Ireland Funds.
