We're looking for young people to carry on the work started by Charles Dickens.
It's the bi-centenary of this famous author's birth in 1812. Dickens spent his life creating extraordinary stories, as well as reporting and campaigning to improve life in London, especially for the young and vulnerable in society.
Can you build on his work to create new opportunities for yourself and others?
- Are you 11 -19 years old?
- Looking to learn new skills, gain fantastic work experience and accreditation?
- Want to network with professional journalists and published authors to learn their craft?
- Looking to improve your digital media skills?
- Want to do something fun, exciting and creative in your local community by running your own arts events, competitions and challenges?
- Want to meet other young people who want to make a difference?
Libraries are working with The Reading Agency to engage groups of young people to plan and promote The Lord Mayor's Dickens Social Reporters Project. The Project will be running in the following Local Authority areas;
Islington, Camden, Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Enfield and Lewisham.
