Writing Squads

In partnership with Literature Wales, Menter Caerffili run a Writing Squad in Caerphilly County. The Squads aim to locate gifted young writers and introduce them to some of Wales’ leading writers, and teachers of writing. Members of the squad come from local Welsh primary schools, aged between 8-11 years old and with head teachers identifying them as keen and gifted young writers. Each Squad of children meets on average three times a year (usually on Saturdays) for special training sessions with outstanding writers who have the necessary communication skills to work with the young writers. The aim is to keep each Squad together until the end of their schooldays.
