Guardian News & Media is always looking for new voices as part of their commitment to the diversity of their editorial content and the writers that we use.
If you are between the ages of 16-22, apply for a place on two young writers’ workshops with editors from the Guardian’s G2, Sport, Culture, and Comment sections. They particularly encourage applicants from all minority backgrounds – so that includes you, deaf kids!
Twenty shortlisted writers will be invited to join them for two workshops at the Guardian offices in Kings Place, London on Wednesday 14 September, and Wednesday 21 September 2011 to:
* understand the different sections of the Guardian
* develop your ideas into pitches
* discuss how to approach commissioning editors and pitch your ideas
* explore ways to encourage more young writers to write for the Guardian
* create a link between new writers and Guardian editors
* help Guardian editors to become more conscious of diversity and inclusion issues that affect young writers
To apply, submit an article (max 400 words) on the theme “I wish…” plus brief details of any published work. Please refer to their terms and conditions and apply here:http://www.guardian.co.uk/minority-writers-workshop
The deadline is 5pm on Friday 26 August 2011 so get writing! You never know!
