Since October 2017, a group of 8-18 year olds have taken part in a free after-school group called OPEN Creatives at OPEN Youth Trust.

Johnny Raspin, lead Youth worker for the group, amalgamated all of the works into an anthology, containing the poetry and prose of the children, as well as a biographical section for each of the writers.

Mr Raspin said: “It has always been aim to showcase the young people’s talents, 
to encourage the next generation of writers and to give them the opportunity to get published.

“I’m really proud of everyone who has contributed, they have worked so hard and have improved as writers throughout the process.”

The anthology was 
launched at independent Norwich bookshop The 
Book Hive on July 5, where it will be sold for £7.50, with all profits going to OPEN Youth Trust.
