First Story

Artists: Winifred Holtby Academy, St Mary’s College, Sirius Academy West, Sirius Academy North & Newland School For Girls.

Creative Director: First Story

The creative process of writing a story is not as simple as putting pen to paper.

Throughout 2016 and 2017, students from three of the city’s secondary schools have been part of the First Story programme.

Working with writers across an academic year, the result is a city-wide anthology, born out of the hearts and minds of a city at the start of a new chapter.

Inspiring and nurturing the development of young people’s creative writing, a selection of the work has been performed throughout the year.
