Are you aged 16-25, LGBTQ+ and passionate about writing? Join our AKT Now Young Writers group!

We want to showcase work from young LGBTQ+ people, provide advice and support through stories and hopefully make a young LGBT+ person feel less alone.

We arrange online workshops with professional writers and journalists, as well as fun social trips and lots of other amazing opportunities! As well as gaining invaluable skills, insight and experience, your confidence as a writer will grow. There are no strict deadlines or word counts- you can submit pieces as much or as little as you like!

We're really keen to get as many voices heard as possible- if you're aged over 25 and have a story for us, please get in touch.

If you're interested in joining our Young Writers group, writing a blog for us, or creating any kind of content for this section of the site - illustrations, videos, audio, you name it - please drop us a line
