Live Tales Volunteers

Do you want to help children to become more creative and confident story-writers?

Do you have time to volunteer on Thursday or Friday mornings?

Live Tales, Live Theatre’s new creative writing centre for children, is looking for Volunteer Writing Mentors and Illustrators to help with creative writing workshops for young people.

Live Tales is located behind Live Theatre just off Newcastle’s Quayside.  Launching in September 2016, Live Tales will offer fun and interactive story writing workshops for Key Stage 2 classes (ages 7-11). Alongside experienced drama workers from Live Theatre's Education and Participation team, volunteers at the Live Tales workshops encourage and inspire young people to explore their imagination, develop communication skills and grow in confidence. The workshops are free for schools, partly due to the help of our committed volunteers.

Live Tales is looking for:

Volunteer Writing Mentors to encourage young people one to one and in small groups to develop their story-writing ideas.

Volunteer Illustrators to bring the young people’s ideas to life by creating illustrations to accompany the story.
