Writing Wrongs Schools Project 2018

23 January 2018

This year, the School of Humanities is launching an exciting writing project for Year 12 students in local schools. Modelled on the Writing Wrongs Schools Project developed by the University of Warwick, Bristol’s Writings Wrongs project will involve a series of 3 x one-day workshops at the university between February and May 2018.

Through a combination of engaging workshops and individual feedback from academics, professional writers and student ambassadors, students will be supported to create their own piece of writing on a social issue that they are passionate about. All students will be strongly encouraged to enter their final piece into the national Orwell Youth Prize. The theme for this year’s Orwell competition is TRUTH vs. LIES.

Workshop dates for 2018 (all 10am – 3pm):

· Tuesday 27th February

· Monday 19th March

· Wednesday 25th April

Further information about the project, including eligibility criteria, can be found here: Writing Wrongs Schools Project 2018 (PDF, 407kB).

Year 12 students who are interested in participating must submit a short application form online at by 4pm on 1st February 2018. Late applications will not be accepted.
