Irish Times supplement
In September, members of the Write Club at Duncairn (13-18) were invited to write stories based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. On Monday 20 November, their stories appeared in a special supplement featuring writing by twenty five teenagers based on the themes of the Convention.

Fighting Words, Dublin, invited Fighting Words Belfast to take part. 2017 is the 25th anniversary of the Republic of Ireland signing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.  


Read their stories here:

What Should I Do? - Peter Wilson (age 14, Ballyclare).

Marabelle - Sophia Fitzsimons (age 13, Belfast).

You can read all the stories here.

The supplement appeared in every copy of the newspaper and there will also be 80,000 copies of it delivered free to secondary schools all over the country, including Northern Ireland.
