Talented Young Writers

Blackheath Publishing was founded on the belief that great stories must be told. That tales, untethered by word counts or genres or orthodoxies, must be shared. And that most of all, talent must be nurtured. But while writing is a wonderful enterprise, it can be fraught with difficulty. Curtailed by self doubt and often ended forever on account of a lack of advice, coaching, knowledge or support, some of the greatest works on earth are probably languishing, as we speak, under piles of old papers or boxes in attics, kitchens, living rooms or basements.Sadly, most will never see the light of day.

Our Talented Young Writers programme is here to change all of that! Our Programme will be launched later in 2022 and we are excited to already be working on our first project. We want to help young writers aspire to greatness, to receive coaching and to pursue their first moment in print so that they remember how good it feels to see their name on the front cover of a book. It is our hope that this will spur them to continue to write, to hone their craft, and to become master storytellers, whether in the realm of fiction or non-fiction.

Our Talented Young Writers programme specifically supports science writing, so we are currently developing a project that focuses on short non-fiction science works. We believe that nature, the environment, space, and science itself, are beautiful, enriching and in need of protection and we hope that our young writers will communicate such values in their work.
