Schools Writing Trail: Z Arts

Manchester City of Literature project

The Schools Writing Trail was in situ around Manchester City Centre from 1-15th June 2023 across 8 venues and featured young writers from 40 different schools across Greater Manchester. Now that the Trail has ended, we have digitised the artwork and writing here as a trail archive to be visited again and again.

The writing from Z Arts came from a project they run every Thursday called Story Stars. Story Stars is where words come to life! Through lots of creative writing exercises, young people aged 8-11 years explore their imaginations, creating stories and poetry in many different styles and themes. All ideas are welcome in this creative space for budding writers.
