Writing For Children And YA: Why Keeping It Real Matters with Eithne Cullen, Sam Norwood and Anne Stairmand

Eithne Cullen was born in Dublin and moved to London when she was six.  She has had poems published in anthologies and magazines and has written two novels: The Ogress of Reading and Never not in my Thoughts and a collection of short stories, Pencils and Other Stories. Her pamphlet, The Smell of Dust was published in September 2021, supported by Pen to Print.

Eithne is a page editor for Write On! Magazine’s weekly Extra page, Thoughtful Tuesdays and was Poet in Residence for Hysteria Writing competition.

Sam Norwood is the founder and director of Write Back, a charity that empowers young people through enriching storytelling programmes. Each young person on the project receives 1-1 support to create their own writing and the programme ends in the printing and public celebration of their work. Sam is also a secondary school teacher in Barking and Dagenham.

Barking and Dagenham Libraries and Pen to Print are proud to host our eleventh annual Literary Festival which takes place between Monday 5 September and Friday 23 September.

We are delighted to showcase our events both online and in-person. This is a wonderful festival which provides a great opportunity to meet authors, discover new genres and celebrate the joy of reading through a wide range of events.

We are really pleased to say that all events do remain FREE. We do this through the generosity of The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and Arts Council England.
