Lighthouse Young Writers

First Class Opportunity for Young Writers


ArtfulScribe have appointed Tabitha Hayward to the role of Young Writers’ Lead Facilitator at Lighthouse, in Poole, as part of the DO:Write project. Tabby arrives with a First Class degree in English from the University of Oxford and has publication credits in The Isis, and The Missing Slateas well as being recipient of the Graham Midgley Memorial Prize for Poetry in 2015 and 2017.  Offering considerable experience in workshop leadership at undergrad level and editing through her role as Editor-in-Chief of The Gallery, Tabby will lead two groups of writers, aged 11-14 years and 15-18 years on Saturdays during term-time at Lighthouse, starting on 9thMarch 2019. 


ArtfulScribe director, Matt West, said: ‘It’s great to be able to offer this role to a recent graduate we feel has incredible potential to inspire new work and encourage the next generation of writers in the region.  This appointment underlines ArtfulScribe’s commitment to empower, support and develop writers at all stages of their careers and it seems particularly fitting that Lighthouse Young Writers should be led by someone under the age of 25.  Tabby’s energy and passion for writing is infectious and I’m really looking forward to seeing how both groups progress in the future.’



Lighthouse Young Writers’ groups are free to join and welcome writers of all levels and abilities, from those who may just be curious about writing to people with more experience. For further information please visit www.artfulscribe.co.ukor contact Perdie Bargh, Creative Engagement Officer at Lighthouse Poole: Perdie.Bargh@lighthousepoole.co.uk
